Believe it or not the seasons change in Florida as well. The tropical heat is a not too distant memory as the first of the cold fronts bring great sailing weather. Time to stow the genny and find Hideaway's storm jib. I know it's in the V berth somewhere. Hmmmm...
After a search I realized we haven't needed the genny all summer thanks to Bruce Bingham's insisting I change HideAway's main sail to loose footed. If you haven't made the conversion on your Compac you should and soon.
HideAway sails herself with ease, points higher, and did I mention she is noticeable faster? "Sailing with a Loose Foot" shows the set up and "HideAway Sails the 3rd of the 4th" shows the system reefed. You'll see Bruce docking Niki as well.
