Yes we put it up. On really tight reaches , the pink was awesome, a lot of other boats in PHRF could not carry a chute to the pink one, and we would make gains when they would follow suit and drive way down trying to carry with us. The staysail was perfect for balancing the helm with it up. We used it in heavy air on a deep run once, probably around 25-30, and felt the regular chute did better getting us op on plane . In light aire you can almost go to weather with pink up.Thanks craig, did you guys ever put up the pink one?
Pic below is regular chute in about 18-22kts breeze. Right during a gybe. Good times.
