Flying Lateen

Post by john allsop »

Has anyone tried a Flying Lateen sail? The mast is like an inverted V and I think the sail is suspended from the point where the masts meet. I have a lateen so as I like building I should start, something for next year. First thoughts are to clamp a board across a Klepper and mount the two masts a little further out from the hull , same each side and outriggers pretty much in line with the masts. Of course getting materials on these small islands can be awkward, no DIY shops or large Canadian Tire as in Canada. I should be able to get the grey matter motivated.
