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,

At a rough guess my jib is about 2.8 sqm leaving the main with 6.95

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?
