Thanks John. I agree that on a run a conventional spinnaker does best.

The problem is that when racing against Asymmetrics the outcome is much too dependent on the course that has been set.
Frequently we get fine reaches where they can fly spinnakers and I can’t, or courses without a run – hopeless. Or if we do get a long beat and a long run then I win and they lose – nice but also hopeless.

I would like to be racing the asymmetrics on equal terms, rather than have it all dependent on the course.
