Different rigs for RL24
Last weekend I hoisted my spare jib (which is designed for roller reefing) on the duck bill in about 15 knots as a Cutter fore-jib (with 2 jibs running), The boat gained about 3/4 to 1 knot knot in velocity with no increased load on the helm or deletrious change in handling. This seems to support a concept that has been floated to me by another RL owner that I could install a MPS or screacher - has any other person had experience with this style of rig.I can forward a photograph if people are interested.
