This is true and you tend to rig larger now, but modern sails have also a bigger wind range. You don't really need sails every 0.5 mē like in the old days. I guess their ability to handle unsteady wind has grown in proportion. Anyway I remember people already complaining in the early 90's (mostly inland spots) with gear of that time. It seems that wind was very steady before WS actually started.
