Race with Furling or Hank on ?

Thread starter #1
I was just wondering ;
do serious Capri 14.2 sailers race with the furling jib or hank on ?
I would guess hank- on so you would be able to adjust the halyard tension .

Paul :cool:

I use the hank on jib, because I do not have a furling jib. I use the halyard to tighten the jib as tight as I can, hoping to get better upwind pointing ability. I think the handbook says to keep the rigging a little loose, I just like mine tighter.

I usually sail solo and have my hands full, so I can't slack the halyard while underway. I use the main sheet to snug it up more for upwind sailing.
