Successful jib

I can now officially call the new balanced jib a success!

I spent a good portion of the Memorial Day weekend sailing and the jib worked great – Venti didn’t miss a tack.  The larger jib has increased her power noticeably. I had a few exciting moments, but that’s what it was all about anyways – this new jib.

Someday I’ll get somebody to take some pics or video for me…

    Congrats Tim. Cant say it looks good, but i am sure it does. Sure sounds like she is functioning nicely. So you have no sheet for the jib?

    I know!…. I gotta get some sailing pics somehow….
    The sheet is really just a line athwartship, like a traveler. I can adjust it though, if I want or need to.
    No need to switch on a tack – it’s self tending.
