Also remember a flogging sail will destroy thread and fabric as well, so keep those sails full and by as much as you can. Lightweight sails like large genoas, drifters, spinnakers, etc., are not made for heavy weather. They can stretch out of shape through keeping them up and drawing in too much wind. It is better to have some kind of heavier cloth staysail to use in strong wind conditions, than risk blowing out the lighter-weight large genoa. A removable inner forestay outfitted with a small, low cut, heavier-weight staysail is much easier on the boat and certainly will save your genoa for a longer life. A removable inner forestay, to be used with a heavier weight staysail, will need a chain plate attachment below the deck and running backstays to keep the mast in column when the staysail is in use.
