Wingmast Literature

Post by Manik » 13 Feb 2017, 21:20

Hey guys,

I've been looking into wingmasts a bit and thought I'd share some of the resources I have found so far:
Do you guys know of any other good sources / recommended reading on the subject?

In Frank Bethwaite's book "High Performance Sailing", part of Chapter 17 discusses his experiments with wingmasts during rig development. It's a great book, with lots of info on understanding and exploiting weather phenomena while sailing, and what makes a sailboat fast in different weather conditions.
