I need some sail theory explained for me. Every main sail I have seen so far seems to curve away from the wind. Whenever the boom is sheeted in tight, the sail curves away from the wind as it goes higher up the mast. Is this actually a desirable effect? If it is, what good does it do? If not, what harm is it doing, and why hasn''t someone already invented something to fix the problem?
