Some pictures from when passing from Skagen, Denmark to Marstrand, Sweden, on a really quiet day. Winds btw 2-3ms, and about halfway, turned up a bit, to btw 3-4ms, and moved forward to about 95-100 degrees TWA to where we where heading. The last half of the trip we averaged about 7.5 knots under such conditions. First half with 2/3ms at 110/120, probably held below 5kn, just enough to not turn on the engine.

When the genny is sheeted this tight, it blows back on the main a bit, as you can see here, the luff of the main is not very effective. The wrinkles in the front of the main are from the "blowback". Further aft towards the leach, the main had good pressure (although all those shiny technora fibers seem to confuse the camera a bit).

These speeds are much beyond the polar charts, probably because our genakker is larger than what they have modeled in the VPP. If we didn't also have the smaller code zero, that is a little more versatile, and should select only one sail, I would have chosen a smaller genny.  105sqm is fine until 6ms/12kn wind at these angles, and as you can see here, it works wonderfully at 3/4ms 6/8kn 95TWA. Stability is not a concern, at such low winds, even with this large sail on H385 (doubles the standard sail area).

These pictures are frustratingly inviting! It's wonderful weather here in Finland at the moment and I want out sailing right now! LOL
