When the winds blowing hard and the bow [of ANY sailing kayak] begins to bury into the waves its usually a call to reef down a bit. But, is there virtue in another method...
What if the MKII sailrigged kayak had a LONGER cockpit where by the sailor could move a full seat position backwards and lighten the bow by doing so?
Is there benefit to this modification or is it merely burying the stern and not helping overall speed? If it IS a worthy idea, how far back would you extend the cockpit?
Thanks in advance!!
