fulling twin headsails
Sailing downwind furling twin headsails?
I’m not gonna go into the advantages of one or the other sail plan. There’s enough on the internet already.
When I crossed the ocean westbound, going downwind, at first I flew a spinnaker. It’s fun but harder to sail then twin headsails.
When I blew my spinnaker, actually both of them, I hoisted a second genoa. I must say, twin headsails sails way more comfortable.
The problem was though, that I used my spinaker halyard for this second genoa and therefore couldn’t furl them in anymore. I didn’t like that too much for the night so every evening I dropped the second genoa.
However, I came across a video of Dolphin Sails, showing how you could rig a second genoa AND furl them both whenever you feel the need.
I for sure will try that next time and I very much like to share this video.
