Re: Windward performance
Any thoughts on the effect of pronounced tumblehome on windward performance at high angles of heel?
Are you wondering about hydrodynamic effects on the leeward side, or aerodynamic effects on the weather side?
In the first case, if you're heeled over that far you have other problems. In the latter, I can't imagine it would have much affect on windage.
