Sail Area Defined
I can't find an answer to this so I solicit the input from the esteemed and knowledgeable group here.
When they advertise or state a boats sail area, what sail dimensions are they using to calculate this. I can figure this out for a boat with one sail, but say for a sloop, is it the area of the main + plus the area of 100% jib or something else? Similarily for a yawl or ketch, how is the area calculated?
