In my sheltered traiing grounds of the St Johns River, I would like to experiment with some downwind options.

Hi Steve,

Dave may answer more fully, but here is a picture of our normal rig for sailing downwind:

Soggy Paws Sailing Downwind

We generally refer to this as the "Tom Service" rig--he probably didn't invent it, but after having circumnavigated, he was the one who described this arrangement to Dave.
