One of if not the most difficult aspects of sailing a boat short handed is headsail sheeting. Larger, multi speed self tailing winches have certainly made things somewhat easier but anything that can reduce the size of headsails is OK with me.

I figure that is as good a reason as any to support the fractional rig argument.
