Well, the weather app says 18-21 mph winds this afternoon....which is rare rare rare here...but so is the the 3" of rain expected today. The "costco sized" hummus tub that I use as a rain gauge is full out on the porch railing. So no flying right now. It has been steady and constant today, yucky day for flying but good for putting the little one down for a nap.
My preferred setups:
std - bl race, mid - bl race, f/v - 3 wrap, x/v - gr race, sul - diamonds. These pretty much stay this way, as I like this as my solo setup.
Will use a 3 wrap in the std and mid if team does too. We like having matched gear so everyone pretty much responds the same.
I usually "drop down" a sail or sometimes two when flying in tough/wet conditions. Going from a Full sail to an SUL to a Zen to just plain going home. I will fly in tough conditions but generally don't set-up at all if it's a steady downpour. If the weather changes whilst I'm there, then I usually stay.
When possible always fly a polyester sail in wet conditions, so at least the fabric doesn't absorb water weight. Lam Hoac used to intentionally wet down a nylon sail in high winds to slow it down, he also ran bridle line thru the inside of the leading edge to pre-tension and add curvature to the leading edge too (back before they were constructed that way)
50# lines will stick together thru water adhesion in high moisture environments, particularly in low wind conditions where the sail isn't powerful enough to snap 'em apart once flight is achieved.
