My super yankee is a little smaller than Kern's, but the cut is such that the sheets can be lead between the upper and lower stays getting a flatter trim and closer to the wind. Here, in 12-15kts.

Luff 41'6" Foot 18'2" Leech 32'8"

That is exactly what I was thinking of, the super yankee.

Thanks, I'll start doing some research on that.

Stephen
