There I decide to swap the staysail for the cruising chute.
The spinnaker was immediately dropped, the staysail furled and the starboard daggerboard lowered.
Most barges set smaller staysails but as our smaller staysail was untried we elected to stand on without it.
After the squall passed we soon had the topsail back up and then tried the staysail but it was too big for the conditions.
Setting the staysail - an unusual view through the forestay.
