    I bought a C&C 25 in September 2018. She's still a sloop rigged bermudan ... for now. 

    Currently getting a sense of the dimensions and positioning.

    Started with a Hasslar/McLeod rig - but I have borrowed Arne Kverneland's work for a revision. I think I like the Ark Rig better since we get terribly light winds in our Mid Summer on Lake Ontario.  

    Photo of my initial sail design. Yellow line is the CLR of the C&C.

    The CE of these sails sits only an inch or two forward of the middle of the sail (boom). Could it be an idea to shift the sail 20-30cm (8-12") forward of the shown position? Then try to draw in a mast which gives a balance between 13 and 15%, and see if that can be done without ripping up too much of the interior.

    Good luck!
