    Well, there's a lot more about the Claudio gadget than that one video.

    A lot of EC 12's run Carr sails (he helped establish the class). Drop by an event and check out the boats.

    Cheers,

    Earl

    I'm going to attend an event in Jacksonville when I return to FL this fall. I understand they have a very active fleet.

    Sail Draft
    i recall reading this analysis some time ago, and had lost track of it when my laptop hard drive failed recently. I just found it again, and figure I will quote it here so I will keep track of it

    Sail draft http://www.onemetre.net/Design/Draft/draft.htm
    I like this 50% draft idea, particularly for a cruising boat like I am hyping, and one that has the interaction of the 2 headsails as mine relies on for light & moderate sailing conditions.
