Main vs. Jib Sail Areas
Date Posted: 05 May 04 05:42
Does anybody have rough estimates of the sail areas for the jib & mainsails? I know the total is 9.75 square meters. If you can email me at michael.renda@yale.edu, you'd be my hero.

thanks,

Calculating both sail areas as triangles, the main is 6.93 sq m and the jib 2.99 sq m.

Surely there's a asilmaker out there who can tell us exactly wot the areas are?
