Jib 110 design


I’m about to order a new 110 JIB (3), Catalina 36 TR are not very popular here in the Med, the local North loft is proposing a 110 (109) jib with, in my opinion a very high clew. He argues that cause of the long spreaders of the C36, this will be the only way the 110 will perform correctly.

We use to race our C36, so performance is an issue. We have and inner stay were we fly a Yankee (this one has a high clew) when wind builds up.

Clew will be around 2m from deck. I’m looking for designs of this sail for our boat.

Any advice/opinion is more than wellcome!
