You've heard of a canting keel, but what about a mast. Coming soon Sailingtheory.com looks at science behind this.
The general consensus id that a canting mast is useful if you sail downwind alot, but not if you regularly sail windard. However you could argue that if you have sailed in one direction off the wind, how do you return your journey back to the safety of your home port?

Have you had a great summer sailing, the weathers been fine, maybe you are still sailing through the winter? Why not tell us of your adventures and share sailing theory with us from passage plans to weather forecasting?
