Spinnaker flying - what about the jib?
It seems like I remember hearing something from when we took our sailing lessons about keeping the jib filled when flying the spinnaker. However, I never seem to be able to make the jib be of much help when the spinnaker is up. Sometimes I can hold it to the side so maybe it gets some wind, but usually it just hangs there. Is it worth even trying to use the jib, or should I just ignore it? Maybe the extra effort would be best spent on fine tuning the spinnaker.
I looked through Cal's pictures from midwinters and from what I can tell, it seems like people weren't worrying about the jib. Any tips?
