I sail a standard rig Laser. At my home site, the Carquinez Straight at the north end of the San Francisco Bay, the afternoon winds are usually in the high teens, gusting to the mid twenties. At 182 pounds that is a lot for me. I'm thinking of getting a radial lower mast and sail for windy conditions. Can someone with experience sailing both size rigs give me an idea of how much and what kind of difference to expect, or is it a wast of time?
