What are the actual differences between all of the sail types, I can only see speed differences?

With the variety of ship sails, what are the actual differences between all of the sail types, I can only see a difference in speed?

I know what they are suggesting but I am concerned that they are not actually being implemented correctly within the game. So, am I right?

I hope I'll explain that right, as english is not my native language:

The handling sail is useful when the wind goes in the wrong direction, as it catches the wind in more angles.
The weight sail should compensate the negative effect on speed only when your ship is heavy loaded, similar to skilling weight on the ship.

My personal opinion? We normally use those sails only on brigs (2x speeds an one of those) and pre patch on the galleon (4x speeds and both of them) - the handling sail works, but you can forget about it and simply sail zigzagways. The effect of the weight sail is barely noticeable for us.
I don't know if the effects are that much stronger if you only use weight or handling sails on the same boat. At this point, I would stick to speed sails every time, but nevertheless build one of them on the boats for the style :classic_happy:
