sail types

I am wondering what the strength and weakness of the standard sail are to say a bermudan sail to a spirt sail I am makeing this out of Tyvek for a sun fish hull (I can't post links yet just search tyvek sail)

Umm... you might want to consult Small Craft Advisor magazine, as this is a subject they address regularly. You also might want to get a spell-checker since about a quarter of your words are badly mis-spelled. I'd also recommend you read the POST in my signature to get themost out of your time on sailnet. Welcome to the asylum.

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.

Dear catsa(i)lor,

A. Being 13 doesn't excuse you from proper spelling.
B. Welcome to Sailnet.
C. Congratulations on spelling Tyvek correctly.

You get more sail area out of the lateen (spirit?) sail than a regular main due to the short mast on the sun fish. Makes you go faster and have more fun!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Umm cam... that would be SPRIT, not SPIRIT? One is a spar, the other is a ghost like being.
