Fat Head Mainsail

A “fat head” mainsail?

There are those who see the way forward as giving the option to have a mainsail with a larger roach (ie the area outside a line from the top of the mast to the outside of the boom).  Is this desirable?

Butler Boats has had a sail built so if you would like to try it contact them.  Mind it cannot be used in official Miracle Association races, but there are members with plans to take it to events for sailors to try outside of the racing.

You can also join in the discussion on the Miracle Association Facebook Group, which you do need to register for, at:  


and of course the Miracle Association committee are looking for views – go to the “Contact Us” page and send an email to the Measurement Secretary.
