Just for kicks - what are the inherent definitions of a jibe and ta ...

All asked and answered ad nauseum in previous threads on this topic.

You made the assertion in this thread. If you don't have an answer, just say so. If everything is asked and answered elsewhere, ...

If the sail isn't backwinded when I get across, it ends up as a disaster on anything 125l or less and I'm on the smaller side of things.
