Hi guys,

if you want to read a little bit more theory about how a sail (or a wing for that matter) is supposed to work:
http://www.sailtheory.com/sail.html

It shows with pictures, why you need a big belly in front of your sail while reaching, even more curve while going downwind and why you need a flatter profile when pointing.

I found it very interesting.
