It's the closest they could get to -1 without going negative?

I'm guessing the inventors of the sail and the term that describes it don't math well.

Oh so you're talking about Lawrie Smith?  The first time I ever heard of Code 0s was for the 97-98 Whitbread. Lawrie Smith developed 0s for EF before moving to Silk Cut

No offence to Lawrie Smith.  Just a joke that goes around our engineering office.  Code zero sounds cool - code minus one, not so much.  Imagine the hospital intercom announcing "room 317; code desert tan."

On the old IOR Farr 40's we used to have a 2 reef offshore main and a no reef inshore main. Then we got a 1 reef main called the not sure main! ;)
