Just a point which hasn't been addressed yet. I'm certainly no experienced sailor but I have found the staysail assists when driving through a gybe. If I don't have the jib up I find it difficult to get through the gybe since I need to furl the genoa to get it over the inner stay. I also like the fact that it can double as a storm sail (mine has 2 reefing points) and I've used it exclusively on a couple occassions when the wind has been around 30 knots and the sea is a little rough. I don't see any advantages to not having it since it's such an easy and manageable sail. Not to mention a full cutter rig just looks damn pretty.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
