R32 sails

Posted: 27 Apr 2015 - By: Geoff Crowley

I have the original sailplan from this website, and Contender has pretty much standard sails. Original mast, boom and apinnaker pole makes that seem sensible.

But after tearing the spinnaker again this weekend I've been wondering about non-standard sails.

Specifically, has anyone tried an asymetrical spinnaker on an R32? Or something else? Tried a larger spinnaker? Or a smaller  one? (I'd thought about having a smaller one for higher wind speeds; our standard size is a bit much over about F4-5 or so)
