Light wind main?

Postby rick_bradshaw » Sat Apr 03, 2010 10:51 pm

In the latest (I think) issue of "Good Old Boat" there was an article about a Nor Sea 27 that used a light air main on transatlantic trips for a few years. Claimed to get 40 mile plus days when the rest of the fleet was becalmed.

Anyone here ever tried that or thought about that? Any comments about how it might work on our heavier boats?
