However, I (as both a proa fan and an interested person) would prefer the rule to stipulate just the sail area, including spars. This would help answer the sloop vs una rig question as well as the hull size and shape questions. Perhaps a maximum of 20% of the total to be the spars to keep it relevant, cheap and easy to handle.
Stayed masts are just so 19th century, I just can't see the practicality
in being so retro.
It's not what I know that counts.
It's what I can remember in time to use.
