33 Sail Configurations
« on: February 09, 2014, 08:55:01 PM »
I am curious as to the findings of fellow 33 owners that have experimented with sail configurations (type, size, weight, cloth, shape etc.  I will be in the market for a new suit of sails in the next year so wanted to see what you learned.  I am thinking: loose foot, full batten, two reef points, over sized roach, around 8oz main with 100% roller furled high cut head sail at 7 oz, a 8 oz loose footed staysail coupled with an asy spinnaker.  Also, what have you learned about trying to move the center of effort forward to reduce weather helm?  

Lastly, I friggen love my CSY 33 Cinnabar.  Its still tougher than I am dumb.  Charlie
