Unless you request otherwise, you automatically get two characteristics with a completed Paine design: great performance in light air, and a friendly stability curve. After we'd sailed for a while toward open water and tacked and jibed a few times, the wind began to sneak away, signaling us to head back. We set the asymmetrical spinnaker and bore off. We had 5.5 to 4.5 knots of true wind, but saw 6 knots on the GPS. We overran the spinnaker, causing it to collapse. This speed in light air comes from significant rocker in the bottom, arced sections of small wetted surface area, and a fine entry (a half-angle of about 15 degrees at DWL).
