In my opinion, if you don’t currently have an internal headstay and running backs, whether sloop or cutter, you should install both before going offshore; both to stabilize the rig in big seas and to enable you to set a storm staysail without having to remove the roller furling jib, and to move said storm sail well aft to where it should be.
After 2 years of only once using my % #2 on a MORC boat, I got rid of it and had a L1, H1, full % #3, 85% #4. storm jib, Daisy staysail/windseeker, a reaching and running chute. We did a lot of distance races with long reaching legs and never felt there was a gap in the inventory. First time out, I got caught in a thunderstorm and wanted to sail with only the jib. As the main sail was doused, the sheet got hung on the fire extinguisher located inside the cabin. The main came halfway down, and with the wind blowing my boat was forced to run with the wind - - .

Boats may be sailed using a jib alone, but more commonly jibs make a minor direct contribution to propulsion compared to a main lly, a jib's most crucial function is as an airfoil, increasing performance and overall stability by reducing turbulence on the main sail's leeward side.. On boats with only one jib, it is common for the clew of the jib to be abaft the mast, meaning the jib.

Sail under storm jib and deeply reefed mainsail or storm trysail. This approach provides the most control. Sails give you the power to steer and control your boat in the waves.
Run before the storm with the stern toward the waves, perhaps towing a drogue to slow the boat. This tactic requires a lot of sea room, and the boat must be steered Author: Carol Cronin. Storm jib and running sails [Warren Norville] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
- Storm Sails. UK Sailmakers builds storm sails to the requirements World Sailing’s Offshore Special Regulations. The Offshore Special Regulations require racers to carry three storm sails: a storm trysail, storm jib and heavy weather jib. The storm trysail and storm jib must be made out of strong Dacron or HMPE (Spectra or Dyneema).
As with the storm jib, your sail will sheet correctly when you set it to the pre-marked height. To consider other factors affecting storm sail construction and trim, let’s look at three different boats: a foot modern coastal cruiser, a foot bluewater cruiser, and foot offshore : Brian Hancock.
A storm jib used with or without a trysail replacing the main generally allows one to continue sailing in stronger winds, usually on a course that minimizes the effects of waves. Racing sailors, for example, usually have a selection of sails and may prefer to keep going rather than wait out the storm with a different tactic that would.
We tried Jo’s own Sanders storm jib (Sanders Sails, ), and a similar sail made by Crusader, hanked on to a Solent stay tensioned by a Highfield-type lever made by Seasure. Both sails were well made with little to choose between them, although Sanders had cut more hollow into the luff to help avoid excess fullness when.
The ATN Gale Sail is the Storm jib and running sails. book and easiest way to hoist a storm jib over your furled headsail in heavy conditions. Simply furl the genoa sheets down to the deck and "hank" the Gale Sail over the furled headsail.
Attach sheets and hoist with a spare halyard. An aside here, people are often surprised to learn that, of the three types, a well set up true cutter can show the most example, on our own Morgan’s Cloud, the area of the jib and staysail are the same as a % genoa, way more than a solent jib, and a bit more than the typical cruising sloop rigged with a to % the combination of the two sails is particularly.
Stormsails are stronger than regular sails, and are designed to handle winds of over 45 knots. You carry them to spare the mainsail. Sails. A storm jib is a small triangular staysail for use in heavy weather. If you participate in offshore racing you need a mandatory orange storm jib.
Our Storm Jib is designed to reliably allow sailors to navigate adverse conditions and heavy winds. The streangth and solidity of this sturdy sail, developed from special heavily constructed Polyester, makes it suitable for both racing and off-shore cruising. It is highly recommended that storm sails be of a highly-visible coloured material.
The storm jib must be made out of strong woven polyester and it is required that the color be highly visible. This picture shows how well Storm Orange sails stand out in dark skies.
If the storm jib is made to fit a luff-groove device, the sail must have an alternative means of being attached to the stay. In order to fit the storm jib, the sail that is currently fitted has to be removed, which in the context of roller furling means it has to be fully unrolled then unsleeved.
Initially this sounds like an awful concept, with the idea of sailing under deep reefed genoa, having an increase in wind, then having to unroll and take down the whole sail. The wing jib works as your storm jib, designed in a crosscut layout in a durable dacron material.
The sail is available in our Marin, Solano and Koonaa segment. Kim Petersen from Elvstrøm Sails has tested the sail on several customer boats. "The new wing jib is quite unique, specifically developed for the growing number of furling sails. Select Sail Type First 2. Choose either boat type or sail luff length (but not both) 3.
Then click “Search” •Results will yield both new and used inventory, (please refer to condition codes). If you do not see a used sail on the results it is because we don’t have one. This prescription modifies OSR High Visibility (a) Every storm jib shall either be of highly-visible coloured material (e.g.
dayglo pink, orange or yellow) or have a highly visible coloured patch at least 50% of the area of the sail (up to a maximum diameter of 3m) added on each side; and also that a rotating wing mast should have a.
By that stage you are usually running before the wind and the sail will plaster itself against the rig, creating enormous friction. it makes sense to make the staysail the true storm jib. The tall staysyl is a very light material and from what I uncovered after researching it found out it is used for very light winds (less then 10 knts) in order to get the boat moving.
Then once the apparent wind has increased you unfurl the geneo. The boat also came with a drifter, reacher, 3 genoas, a storm jib, and 2 symetrical spinnackers.
Many cruising sailors purchase a Storm Jib sail one size larger than required so it can double as an inner staysail for use in windy areas. Storm jibs have the option of brass hanks on the luff, or a luff tape if feeding into a furling unit.

We've crossed the Atlantic three times in three years and were so pleased with our choice of ketch rig. Our yankee is on a furler and our staysail is hanked on, so if we have a problem, we have maximized options.
We experimented in local waters off Long Island for several years before embarking on blue water adventures. With a furling jib, bring in enough of the sail so that the bow is not blown completely off when the sail is back winded.
You can also try easing the jib sheet a little so that the sail is slightly less backed. With a hanked-on jib, try with a smaller working jib or a storm jib. We had assumed we would try to squeeze the budget to find cash to install a removeable inner forestay and running backstays for the sole purpose of flying a hank-on storm jib there (with our planned trysail).
However, our sailmaker recommends modifying a storm jib into a sail like ATN’s Gale Sail, to set OVER the roller-furling headsail. Having the small jib will also protect and extend the life of the genoa, and provide needed insurance against complete sail failure when far from home.
Offshore, the working jib is likely to be the correct sail a large percentage of the time. The other beauty of a separate inner forestay is that it is the perfect place to hank on a true storm jib.
