Managing Balance
 

     
   

This sequence of pictures shows the upper and lower luff parrels in detail, the full scope of movement of the kicking strap and the full range of balance for the sail. We use maximum balance for running and broad reaching and minimum balance for the rest of the time. We're still experimenting though. The sail is stable and safe when running - it is extremely difficult to gibe accidentally.
