Welcome to our kingdom.
If you can imagine a square sail.
that remains stable.
Broad foot that can dance dead.
Luff to windward; a leading EDGE.
Leach to Leeward; a leading POINT.
A tapered edge to slip through a gap in the wind
and fine point propulsion
I believe in poetry and practice.
, into the wind
Tail off, a drag on.
To me that simply states a torqued luff to lead a slipped system with beat eye at head of luff tension, running eye at guy eye of luff tension. Eg the monitoring of rippling there!
Brace is brace. The more you heave the more you brace ho. It isn't simple until practiced. I have never practiced square. Just saying that such with enable the leeward flowing of the sail.
Tale off, a drag on. They will dance dead eye to wind!!!
Similarities with sloop!
It is of best practice to flow the leeward of sail cloth! To do such is your own practice. Why leeward and not windward of cloth?
Because of safety
and Watt might be fun when practiced and fluent later.
To flow the leeward tales is worth the learning
. Yaw rotation of vessel might feel less powerful but just be patient whilst momentum building on a much less stressful rig.
It isn't easy, nothing rarely is, but it'll work
out soon enough. Leeward flow helps concentration of higher pressure on leeward thus assists in rotation (heeling of vessel) as high to low systems of pressure naturally flow high to low. Although windward might even be luffing a little bit (drag on in low pressure), sail shape will leach the winds energy and create thrust aft of sail as leach points slip into stream. Longer sail cloth life.
Just practicing white cloths gets a habit clear for later on.
of your main sail, and confidence to flow your leeward, a spinnaker
might be introduced. Same principles but a little bit trickier. Isn't there to pressurize pocket but to high pressure leeward and punch strong. Doesn't even look like that's happening yet if balanced that is moments truth.
If your crew is good enough, you can dead reach like a square rigger. I ain't that confident but I ain't worlds best sailor neither.
The art to hide inside a blow. Rather than force sails
, force is leached and in slip stream behind creating thrust.
get really heavy. Sails
get less wear.
Lessons learnt from a boat
taught to survive. Last sea leg was on a bent spreader, a broken step and sailed home because night before was line sheer on heavy sheets
. Eg. Basically no damage.
Learn to flow leeward cloth brother, sister.
Welcome to enjoy art in our world. Please don't litter.
Edit: that night was full throttle in Gale though on a light weight. Main leaching spinnaker
aft of sails. Reduction of wind disturbance. I just thought to include that if lost
with damage comment. Many might snap instead.
