OK je vais poster...

Pour la voile: par vent fort, disons jusqu'à 18 noeuds, j'ai remarqué que la voile 'depower' juste comme une voile mono-film moderne. C'est-à-dire, se déforme en haut...

Evolution...

If the case, then it's evolution into easiness, which is often a main reason put forth by kiters for the switch. I have not a problem with that argument.
