Need Help Planning a Lugsail to replace a Bermudan
Hi, I am considering building an 18 foot stitch-n-glue weekend cruiser sailboat whose designs include a bermudan sail and mast, etc.
However, I would like to build and use a balanced lug sail instead.
For a comparable lug sail, do I just determine the square footage of the bermudan sail and design a lug sail of the same square footage (and a mast to suit), or is there more that needs to be considered?
Thanks for any help you can offer
p.s., this is the boat I am considering, though I am pretty sold on trying the lug sail even if I ultimately build a different boat. http://www.boatdesign.net/nyd/P590/
