Re: sailing past close hauled?

How about this... what would the impact be on how your sloop would sail of you could can't the mast (tip it at its base) to one side or the other. Would you kill your ability to point and make more leeway? I think so if it is tipped to leeward. If it is tipped to windward what would happen? stall?

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
