Don Silsbe Posted September 18, 2021 Report Share Posted September 18, 2021 I’ve been sailing my Two Paw 8 for two years now, and I love the little thing. But last month I sailed her alongside Jan Coté’s Spindrift 12. She flew by me! When we switched, and I sailed hers, I sailed circles around Two Bits— literally! I felt the need for speed. So, I’m in the process of changing from a spritsail rig to the Bermuda rig sail plan that came with my plans. Both were with the plans. Plus, I already had a spritsail rig from another boat. But now, I want the faster sail. Here’s my problem. If you know me and my BRS15 Local Honey, you know that I love to furl and stow my sails on the mast. I’d love to do that with this new rig, but that would mean deleting the battens, and eliminating the roach. The reduction in sail area is about 9%, according to my calculations. Dare I alter the sail plan, and reduce sail area? After all, I’m doing this for speed. What do y’all think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
