A lightweight reacher/drifter might be the ticket. That sail will be good up to about
10 knots and then your yankee/staysail/main will take over nicely..
I have a lightweight assym but it is not cut flat enough in my opinion...
although we are still able to get to about 50 apparent.
It might be worthwhile to talk to Kern about this.
I noticed that Dave Kings reacher/drifter seems to be built out of more
appropriate
material in the right places...unless that is just reinforcing.
