    Three - masthead code zero, J2 and J3 (I think)

    Is there something silvery-grey hiding behind the genoa?

    I think they might be mid-peel, ie forehead sail change when you have both up for a moment mid-change - probably peeling from masthead code zero to fractional code zero, both of which would use the same tack point at the end of the bowsprit.

    Yeah, bloody show offs :) when 25 knots downwind with four sails up isn't enough :thumbs:

    I like that the pic shows how much lift all that sail upfront generates. Actually reducing displacement for greater speed. Next time round the boats will be foiling I think, like the IMOCA 60s :cool:

    StoneRoad RIP Greebo being kinder heckling from the back!

    That looks like fun, if you are into fast sailing ...
    (I'm more of a motor-sailer, given how heavy "Emoyeni" was when craned onto the low-loader before the re-launch in 2015)
