Would anyone have a polar for Jib & Main only?
Any tips and tricks for downwind sailing sans Spinnaker? When does wing on wing make sense?
Any tips for deep-reaching sans Spinnaker? Change my rigging?
BLUR posted a short-handed jib-and-main target speed chart here: https://www.blur.se/2016/12/24/shorthan ... j105-j109/
I've been working to a different chart this summer on SF Bay and just re-discovered this chart a few weeks ago. Hoping to give it a serious on-the-water trial before my next single-handed race this weekend. I've found it very hard to sail my J/109 competitively directly downwind under PHRF Jib and Main. It's frustrating because I can sometimes make it singlehanded to the first windward mark right along with a fully-crewed fleet, but then I give it all away on the downwind leg.
