ex-calif's advice is sound IMO... Most deliveries under sail I've had have been with full or cutaway forefoot hulls but I've found that keeping your main full and drawing along with your head
sail(s) as you enter the wave is more important than anything else.
As 'Zee' mentioned, hitting at about 3/4 off head
on and driving the boat through the wave is probably optimal from my experience.
With a following sea, taking it on your quarter is the most comfortable for me. Capt Phil
