inverted main?

i raced on a cat 390 and noticed its main was inverted. (bent the wrong way). no backstay adjuster. the sail looked very full and we did quite well.
moderate wind 8 to 12 knots. has anyone seen this before? is there a reason for this?

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.

This is perplexing. I think he is saying that the mast is bent the opposite way to normal. However, if the sail was cut too flat, bending the mast aft (the normal way) would make it fuller, so that makes no sense either! Huh? What gives Mr31? Don't leave us hanging!
