Goose winged jibs on Capricornia

Unlike most sailboats Capricornia has two jibs - an inner and an outer - which makes her a cutter.  Part of the fun of sailing her is the extra options this offers.  If you are sailing with the wind behind (downwind) then you can catch more of it by 'goosewinging' - one jib out one side and the other out the other side, as in the pic below.
