... as a mathematical surface and use geometry to compute the patterns are presented. Here the sail is treated as a stack of horizontal arcs with precisely defined shapes. In one method, a path excess equation is used to calculate the luff round for a mainsail. Another approach plots the geodesic paths on the sail's...
