MPS or Gennaker Trim

Recommended Posts

When reaching with this sail I would play around with strapping down the sheet so the turning block/point  is much further forward rather than running it all the way aft

You can do this simply by just tying an open loop around the sheet and strapping it to a genoa car or any handy tie point that is strong enough..Lead it aft to a cleat in the cockpit and then play around with the tension. I'm no sail trim guru but this always seemed to make quite  difference on my old boat,.

I think this is called a barber hauler but the racing experts might correct me on that.

Looks to be a lot of opportunities for more sail area at the foot of that sail

a full hoist sail would give maybe a third more power down low where it’s of the most use
