Re: Negative Two Foot Itis
I've never sailed one, but from what I've heard the paradox actually points to windward well despite not having a keel or centerboard. I suspect that's why it was named paradox! It's chine runners act basically like a wing keel, in that they actually point downward like a keel when the boat is heeled over going to windward.
My favorite thing about the paradox is it's brilliant ventilation box, which let's in tons of air but won't let in any water even if the boat is rolled or boarded by waves.
