The Inside Gybe
The techniques shown in the following photo sequences can be done with three crew—the helmsman and two trimmers—though more is merrier; most J/105s race with five. In the inside gybe, the lazy sheet is led inside the spinnaker luff and forward of the forestay. The alternative is an outside gybe (sheet led outside the sail), which forces the trimmer to haul in more sail.
