I have had one season with my new 385 and the time has come to consider extention of my sail wardrobe.
My FCL sails seems OK, also the 095% jib if TWS is abow 4 ms.
A 105 % jib is an obvious extention, but the gain is not more than 6 sqm.
A sailmaker reccomand a code 0/code x with fibre laminat - 60 sqm. On selden CX 25 role. That will handle upwind up to 30 degr in light wind and downwind -> 140 degr in stronger wind. Than consider to drop or delay bying a expensive 105% when the code also handle light upwind sailing.
My experiance from my last boat is that code sail on role is a good cruising Option.
Usage will be some shorthanded clubregattas and cruising.
Any experiance with code sail on the 385 used in club regattas as well cruising ?
What is the right, confortable Size ? Fabric ( up to 5-6 mps) ? Sail loft ?

Have you considered a Furlstrom from Elvstrom Sails, it's basically an Asymmetric chute, but will also set close to the wind in light conditions. Or perhaps the new blue water runner also from Elvstrom

Thanks, the New "Blue water Runner" looks like a perfekt match for a shorthand jib boat as 385, so i have saken for an offer, IT depence On og if its possible to measure inn to nor rating/ orc and use such a strange sail both in local regattas And cruising.

Some thoughts and experiences.
I have a C0, on a furler. A  powerful sail and is a highly recomended sail.
"Full" power from AWA 34, and is used in regattas (Bod°). Your rating will of course go up with this sail and to compensate mutch "handeling" -training is recommended. See my rating- data on NOR-lys.

Here are some +/- as I see it:

+
* Power in light coonditions (keeps your "heavy boat" go forward also in hoplessly light winds)
* Make you point high with the right placing of the sheet block. (modified)
* Useful in upwind range 2- 16kn. When close hauled no problem up to 12kn TWS. (from there its too powerful, and broatching will occure even with a reefed main)
* Easily handeled singlehanded.
* With few or no tacks between marks- you will be hard to catch!

-
* Rating goes from 0,893 to 0,940 (My boat)
* Handeling time is high with untrained crew. (on short circuts with a lot of tacks you will loose time and not be able to sail to rating)
* sail must be rolled inn for tacking
* Some modifications needed to the boat to be able to sail to rating with the sail.

Remember:

- You will need to reinforce your bowspit/anchor rest (or you will tear it right off the boat under full power)
- You will need to install 2:1 halyard to have enough luff tension for the best upwind performance.
- there is so mutch power that your 8mm tack- point at the bow will not hold. 10mm is ok.

My C0 is a Elvstr÷m sail probably of same fabrick as recommended for you.
