Well we now have settled on  342, and looking at possibly adding a Genneker or Code 0 on a fuller.
Does anybody have data of luff length and sail area?
Any preference on which sail to go for, use will be mainly cruising a bit of around the sticks racing

If you - like me - use a self tacker with battens, you’ll find switching it to genoa to be too much effort, especially if you’re sailing shorthanded. In this case you’ll probably want a furling code 0 type sail.

I have not used my  gennager one single time after getting the code 0. I can use from below 40˚A in light wind to 150˚A, and deploy or furl in no time.

I got the code sail after loosing to slower boat when the self tacker was too small and the gennager was over powered.
