    Two ISORA races to and from the IOM. Plenty of breeze later on the Sunday, Friday a bit lighter. But I take your point!

    8th July in fact. Those that say I don't know what day it is might be right.

    We did about 18 miles in 10 hours total, about 1-2Kn for the first 4 hours about 3Kn in the next two hours, we ground to a complete halt in the end.
    If I'd wanted to live in a Banana Republic I'd have gone to South America.

    In reply to the original question, to get 7 points out of the spinnakers it would be need 28sqm taking out approx...

    As others have pointed out the boat is sticky in the light so you don't want to reduce too much sail area.

    You could do it but you would want to look at getting the points from all over the boat, re-weigh (possibly add a battery or two to help), work on your overhangs, some out of main P and E, little out of Jib LL and maybee a slightly shorter sprit.

    Weighing next month and measure the sails, and then take it from there! Certainly don’t want to reduce the sail area by that much!
