Small Jib for Lighter Teams….

I was chatting with Jeremy Davy recently, and we got to talking about the lack of progress with FFI on the new rig.  The basic discussion was around how much easier the boat was to handle with the new jib especially.

The Dragons recently approved an additional smaller jib to help lighter teams compete in a blow.  Jeremy pointed out that even if we don’t get the new rig, why not make the measurements on the existing genoa “maximum” measurements … then sailmakers could experiment with smaller sails to some extent within the existing measurements.

Interesting idea…..
