Engineering the Sailboat—Safety in Numbers
How do you design a rig strong enough to stay up in the worst weather, but not so oversized that it creates excess windage and diminishes stability? How is a hull engineered to hold together in adverse conditions but not built so heavily that it sails like a bathtub? Where is the line between safety and performance? Eric W. Sponberg.
