if you remember the front sail drives the front of the vessel away from the wind the back sail (missen) turns you into the wind and the main is the driving force, its a great to play and don't forget to reef because, thats alters all the dynamics all boats should be ketches its so much more fun. captflood.

I would not have good balance with just the mizzen staysail on my ketch and in heavier weather my mizzen staysail, like most, is too light a cloth. Your situation may differ, but I do best with the working jib and mizzen in heavier weather. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I used to sail in constricted areas, like the ICW, with my genoa and mizzen staysail. I would do this because I could deploy and douse these sails without turning to windward and it allowed me more control and safety in areas of less manuverabilty. Unfortunately, several years ago I mounted a wind generator in front of my mizzen and gave up the mizzen sail option. 'one of those compromises that always faces us. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
