greendane Posted June 8, 2017 Report Share Posted June 8, 2017 Hi all--for the next few months until I have my new masts, I only have one. I sailed it (my CS17) last year in the center position and it worked fine. I've generally run with the mizzen sail only, though I have laced on the main a couple of times. The main sail encroaches on visibility and the sprit-boom swings just at eye level. I am curious though (and new to sailing--this is the only boat I've ever sailed), if I put the single mast and sail in the bow, how would the boat behave? More or less likely to heel or capsize? Always wanting to turn so I'd be fighting with the tiller? I really don't understand the dynamics and prefer to get some theory and feedback before doing any trial and error. Thanks.
