I've had great luck with my full-battened main and cruising spinnaker in light air. Full-battened main holds its shape therefore, I believe, it is more efficient in lighter air. Cruising shoot is a great light air head sail and is useful on on just about any reach. Mine is wearing out, as don't change it out soon enough when the winds freshen up. The Westsail certainly can handle the load, so I usually don't notice and have to make a conscious effort to remember to take it down. But it sure is fun!

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!
