Re: Question about sail area

Kishi:
Sounds to me like you need quite a bit of help with this. How do you know where to put the mast? Did you guess? There is no hard answer foir your question. How did you come up with 100 sq. ft? Did you guess? Normally the topsail and the flying jib would not be included in the "base" sail area.
