Smile How toSail a Ketch ?

Hello

I am a new member. I want to have a modern ketch motor sailor built. I have picked out a designer who has the perfect boat design for me.

I do know how to sail, but have never sailed a ketch. I am reading the articles about sailing a ketch, but can't find what I want.

Sailing in light air, can you still fly a spinnaker or a doyle UPS sail ?


Thanks You

Angle1

Yes. For that matter, if you want, you can also fly a smaller spinnaker from the mizzen at the same time.
Lots of strings to tweak.
