Jim Focha and Julie Gwin

We gave our genoa away after purchasing a Super Yankee from Kern. This is the name he gives the jib he makes for the Westsail. Although he makes a larger Jib he reccomends the S/Y for most crusing. We also carry a drifter and a crusing spinniker. We didn't use the spinnker last year and found the drifter to be prone to colapse in slightly rolly conditions. We are returning to Mexico tommorrow to get the boat ready to go back in the water and will bring the drifter home. Just my opinion but I'd skip the genoa and go with the super yankee. If you need a light air sail I'd go with a crusing spinniker.
