Re: Mast head vs. fractional rig
Extra sail area is extra sail area. But in development racing classes where total sail area is strictly controlled, fractional rigs or even jibless single sail rigs are what shakes out. Look at The C-class Cats for illustration.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
