Cool design!

OK, I'm guessing it has almost no drag downwind, but it becomes a delicate game of balance up-wind. So the cost isn't so much the structure of the mast, as are the electronics that reel in the upper sails in the event you need to reef.

What sort of motion/wind sensor array would it take to trim her fast in the event of a sudden gust?
