Topsail
Hi I was wondering if anyone has considered a topsail with a sprit for added height? I was thinking this could be another way to increase sail area in light air. kinda like the pic in my attachment...

Re: Topsail
Can't think why it wouldn't work. Only downside is just the labor of assembling it. It'd be for only very light winds and would be small and to remove it would require lowering the main to get it off the gaff but why not? Love to see and hear about it if you give it a go!
