    Great Video!
    I especially like the finish sequences at the end......


    So these things have a marconi main for going upwind, then hoist a huge gaff rigged main behind the marconi to project a shitload more sail area downwind? Twin sail tracks on the mast?

      The mainsails are gunter.

      The offwind sail is called a ringtail - a leech extention with a stiffening batten/yard at the top. Sort of a studding sail. Doesn't go all the way to the mast.
