Will and Sarah-

Nice interview with Paul Trammell. Your point about weather helm and properly sized and configured headsails is spot on. We replaced our 135% Genoa with a 100% Yankee cut jib a few months ago. It’s much more appropriate for tradewind conditions, and works beautifully with our staysail in cutter configuration. Less weather helm, less flogging, and we can actually easily tack now with the inner forestay in place.  And our Hydrovane seems made for our IP40 🙂
