Sail selection, Pogo 2
« on: June 08, 2009, 11:21:39 AM »
I am in the process of buying a Pogo 2.  Hopefully everything should go ahead within the next couple of weeks, and I'll be able to go out for my first sail.  Unfortunately the seller isn't able to come out for any orientation sails, so I have a question -

Bearing in mind that everyone has slightly different sails, is there anyone willing to provide rough guidance on when to change sail combinations?  For example, going to windward, at what wind speed do you change from genoa to solent?  When do you reef the solent?  When do you put in first and subsequent reefs in the main?  Downwind same questions, for size of spi + reefs?

Obviously I am going to have to do a lot of testing and practicing to see what works best with my particular sails / boat / sailing style, but it would be nice to have a general idea.

Thanks in advance.
