Inner Forestay

Post by samphire2014 »

Other than Tony Mynett, has anybody else fitted an inner forestay to a Sabre?

If so, I have questions, for those who have experience please:-

1) Do you leave this rigged throughout the season, or only if heavy weather is anticipated?
2) If rigged, what difficulty if any, do you experience when tacking with the foresail and in particular a genoa?
3) Would there be any advantage in considering Dyneema in lieu of Stainless Steel?
4) What tension would you consider applying to this new stay

thank you all in anticipation
