Hi everyone, what is really new there? This concept seems to have been around for some years already. Is NP the first to describe how the sail moves? For sure they have been thinking about drag and lift. Maybe the point is not better control in gusts but more acceleration due to the improved profile. Also I wonder if this could reduce clew line adjustments. The rigging video still show some.
