Good day Cathy and Gerald

My post is not on sail makers but ref to what I am using in light and regular airs

I use a Kern Yankie cut jib of about 215 +/- she pulls great down to about 8Kts combined with the stay. And for that always desired deep broad reach I use a recut 300 sq Ft unit on my profurl 42nc works great. but for the real light stuff I have a 440 ft free flying drifter which works great although I have to use a turning block at the gallows and had to install a spiniker block on the mast head.

As for the loss of 18" on the foot of the main oh man did that help Imagine balance correctly (I am using a recut battenless main with hollow)
