Point being that I would expect any high performance boat to be doing its stuff in a force three, yup twice wind speed is cool !!!!

So i can expect your moth to have a 5m mainsail and a 3 m jib and it will be quicker than a normal 8m sail???...

Do you really believe that?

the PY for a pico with a jib is slower than for single sail ( but I spose there's 2 people )

jibs mean less pointing going upwind so its an advantage not to have one!

 

lifes to short to sail slow boats!

I find that the boats with the most outrageous poiting abilities are the ones with jibs - Nat 12 and Int Canoe for starters. Single sails are better off the wind, but a decent jib set up adds loads of efficiency upwind...

It depends on the boat and the Speeds involved (and the courses to be sailed).

I only have recent Cat experience; but upwind the jib just gets in the way - it's what limits the pointing; Cats with single sails (Shadow; Inter 17; A class; 18HT) all point a little higher than the boats with jibs.  now reaching (espically when not fully powered up the jib helps heaps as it helps to keep the flow attached to the back of the sail.  Same goes for off the wind without a kite.

Again; off the wind with the kite up IMO the jib just gets in the way / disturbs what is going on with the kite putting flow down the back of the mainsail.
