    Posted: 25 September 2017 at 19:53
When we are running at >160 TWA, the jib / self tacking jib gets into the wind shadow of the main. 
With many other boats, the crew is putting a (spinnaker-) pole to the sheet of the jib and shifts the main to the other side. 

Do you have solution on how to mount a spinnaker pole at the H320? How can the pole be lifted - I assume some challenge with the sheet of the self tacking jib. 

Where do you store the pole when not in use?

We don't use a pole but usually just roll away the jib as its not doing a lot and we don't notice a drop in speed to any great extent.

If running off the wind we often rig a jib sheet to the centre cleat and back to the winch via a turning block.  We do have a traveller rail but no car. Once the jib gets into the main shadow of the mainsail it does not seem to be a lot of use.  When cruising we're not worried about every little bit of speed. 
  
running downwind goose wing would benefit from a pole but we just run under mainsail or cruising chute alone.   
Cant take a joke, don't buy a boat.

When we run strait downwind i.e >165 TWA, we have to roll the jib in. 
In such a case, even a Najad 330 or a HR310 can overtake us.

I agree with Gordon. We have a 66.7 square meter gennaker, and use it always without the main. With low wind, it can be temporarily used even at about 95 - 185 TWA. Our experience is that the gennaker and the main & ST jib overlaps quite perfectly.

You may find my approach on the 341 forum useful.  This was in reply to a question on the 345 forum.

As we sail in Scotland where the wind or course is varying quite frequently, I find we rely on the jib a lot and only use the cruising chute occasionally.
