Hi.
I have just bought a J/80, my first sailboat ever. It came with 1xMain, 2xHead, Gennaker AP and a Jib Top. Does anyone have experience sailing the Jib Top? What wind is it desinged to preform in. Is it a "small" gennaker ?
The boat is one of only seven in Norway, so I hope to get some info from this forum.

Thanks to all, for a lot off usefull info on this site.

How is this "jib top" rigged (on the bowsprit or on the stem ?). My sailmaker did not recommend making a top jib for the bowsprit as the sailplan would be quite unbalanced. Never tried however.

It`s rigged on the bowsprit, just like the gennaker. Goinig to test it tomorrow for the first time.
