Re: reflections

This is an interesting exercise. Actually no different than reefing the main by raising the boom. Not recommended but then who ever discovered anything new by following the rules! It seems to me that a smaller main with a higher boom would upset the balance of effort around the centre of resistance. With proportionally more drive from the jib, the hull would have a greater tendency to round up. Having said that, a San Juan is probably one of the better boats that can sail on the jib alone, but it requires speed to maintain direction. The higher you point into the wind the more pronounced the imbalance will affect the boat.
