Preview: My Favorite Rig and Why—A Guide Post by Doug Hylan
November 13, 2014
As a lazy sailor, my favorite rig would be fractional sloop, sans running backstays. I have enough excitement just coming about, and find that I often forget all about the runners until well after they should have been set up. There is nothing worse than settling down on a new tack, getting your beer bottle all squared away, and then discovering that dmned runner slatting all about. It's a standing backstay for me!
