Hello Barry - nice work. Have you compared the weight of the soft sail rig and and the wing sail? I build and sail Mini40 trimarans which are 1.22m long. I would like to build and fit a wing sail to the boats but have always been put off by the weight. Some photos are attached here, plus a link to a video

hi Barry,
Looks great! and without a jib, your wing works great.

Looks great Barry, I have a simular project here on Instructables "RC Wing Sail Catamaran", I will follow your progress with great interest. Good luck with your first sail, I can't wait here how it goes.

Hi Dan your project inspired me . I have been on the project for 4 weeks now and done 4 test sails . I like to say all went well but I have a lot of tuning to do .I have put a jib on to help tacking, which it has I pitch poled it in 15 knot , but sailed again in the afternoon with. better control 8 to 10 knots. It is a bit sluggish in light winds. but goes well when in the grove which is narrow. Got a lot to learn.
