The picture below is from a newly re-rigged c17 that I converted from a sock-style sail plan to a sail track plan. I'm very pleased with the way it sails so far. I don't have a lot of experience with sailing a cat ketch like this with the sprit sail design. My question is this. Does this look right for the main sail. It has one reef set in and there appears a prominent vertical crease in the middle of the sail. I tried to increase the snotter tension, but it seemed fairly tight as is. Maybe this is normal for such a rig when the sprit is on the lee side of the sail? The breeze was maybe just above a gentle breeze. What do you think? -Tom
