The biggest challenge is that you don’t have that many sails, so you need to figure out the best set that can cover you across everything.The fact that you can fly a jib downwind instead of a code zero means you might try to manage the bigger sail upwind in some conditions just so you have it up when you’re going downwind, for example. Those are the kind of tradeoffs we’re working with.
