Oh that is interesting. I guess when Graham said self righting he meant self righting.  Somehow I thought the SR meant the boat would not turtle, but you are saying the SR is not stable with the sails laying out on the water. She will come back upright. That might make it very difficult to lay it over in the first place. 

Your diagram has VCG and LCB and they are offset. That is I presume what gives the boat it's righting moment.

CG is center of gravity not sure what the V is

CB is center of buoyancy not sure what the L is

I think this baby needs to attend capsize camp. Since the first task at camp is to capsize. She might flunk out.
