Re: Jib clew height
How much are you intending to raise it? I presume you want to see the horizon? This is a photo taken from a sister ship.
As you can see visibility of the horizon on the lee side is no problem without raise the tack or the entire foot.
Visibility of the windward horizon from the LEE side is an issue ans raising changing the sail geometry will do nothing for that. You need look at the windward side from the windward side.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
