Re: Manoeuvrability of Square-Rigged Vessels ?

...and I am really enjoying PjotrC's link...took me awhile to whip the crew into shape(ie:figure out the controls) and still learning to do that but 'tis really absorbing....
I'm glad you brought this subject up,Didz.

Re: Maneuverability of Square-Rigged Vessels ?

Have you tried the Jiggle Jibe yet, heading closer to the wind to loose speed before hardening the foresails, slacking the spanker, and rudder to turn as quickly as possible.
If this reduces the distance lost by jibing it's a significant improvement.
You can move the islands to make reasonable target paths. And change the sail and mast positions too, when you feel up to it. (This simulation does take huge amounts of time.)

Re: Maneuverability of Square-Rigged Vessels ?

Went into the local libarary yesterday and ordered all the books mentioned so far in this thread. None of them were on the shelves, and a quick check of Amazon and Ebay revealed that those that were for sale were pretty expensive.

Yes ,the shooting upwind I can do but boxhauling
per about halfway through this article
Ocean Navigator | The magazine for long-distance offshore sailing and power voyaging has so far has defeated me exactly.It should be really tight and without gathering too much way,if that's possible.

ha!...No, I haven't tried moving islands yet!Fortunately,she seems to plow on through em......Still in beginners mode but I have been able to sail around one,(by ignoring the others!)and I would like to build a brig but accurate proportions are trickier than I thought...I can't be sure they're correct by mere guesswork. .
