Will, Sandpiper is a cutter. I have never owned a ketch. We researched the ketch sail plan before making our purchase of Sandpiper. Having said all that...Sailing your ketch close by the wind with the mizzen set will slow you down. Saling close to the wind should NOT require a vang or traveler. Now, when you sail off the wind, the story changes. The further off the wind you sail, the more useful the mizzen will become. And, also, a vang and traveler. I am sure you know how all that works.

fair winds,

The question is "How close can you sail to the wind?" 70 degrees? 65 degrees? 10 degrees?
