Of course, you could buy the back issue for less than a single article IIRC. However, not all the issues are still available.

BTW, it will depend on how you're planning on using the asym... are you going to use a sock/snuffer or use a wire-luff furling unit. You really need to talk to a good sail loft to get the info on what your choices are. Generally, the wire-luff furling sails are a bit smaller than ones you can set using a sock/snuffer.

The flatter cut sails can be generally used upwind a bit, but are not as good downwind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
