Thanks Peter. In the Gallery section the file can be larger. Do you have a higher resolution version?

BTW if you have full main and storm jib combo, you are likely to get weather helm. I go to reefed main and normal jib as the wind gets up.

Thanks Ian,
Yes aware of the weather helm story and I too go down on the main size before going for a smaller jib. In this case, we were just trying all the sails to get a good look at them and the sheeting angles and we also wanted to have a clear view of the photo ship (and vice versa), so the little jib gave us good vision.

Might try using a slightly larger image tonight.
