    Back in 2008, Omer Gonen of Omer wing sails said that he was hoping to sail his wing-rigged Elan 37 against a standard sistership.

    Could Omer or anyone else please tell us how the testing came out? According to the claims, Omer's Elan 37 should have finished its races between a Farr 40 and a TP 52, which would have been quite interesting. Surely that would have caused some comment.

    Can anyone post some information on this amazing performance breakthrough?
