Yeah, but this is a cruising forum. Look, there is no question that a Marconi rig will be the better option racing
around the cans on triangle courses, and the aft mast
will not point the cat quite as high as the big roachy main.....but so what?
The aft mast
boat that I've sailed performed very well upwind and down, and the benefits of the aft mast rig with double headsail furlers far,far outweigh a few degrees of pointing ability, IMO.
