Yes, a friend of mine got one a couple of years ago and was
quickly amazed at how well it sails and how very practical, (I almost
said foolproof) a rig it has. That does not however,IMHO, render
stayed rigs 19th century, it just adds another option to the
available ways to go sailing. I am a bit hooked up on wing masts
myself. Each to his own taste as the French put it.
