Yes, I think I have my sights on a cutter for that reason.
But I am still trying to understand what problems I might encounter even with a cutter rig - particularly during tacking or jibing.
I think I understand the advantages of furling sails - reducing the necessity to leave the cockpit when raising and lowering the sails. But do you know if a furling system can be combined with self-tending jib or genoa on a cutter?
It doesn't seem possible to me.
