Very interesting! Can we assume the mast rotates 90 degrees for downwind legs?

The Trintella 'Mona Lisa' was for sale for ages.

There are some good photos of the Aero Rig at work.

We anchored together with an Aerorig yacht in quite a few lagoons in the Pacific: with that rig, they needed swinging room like a panamax!

Side question:
how do they align that radar scanner on the front tip of their boom with c/l when sailing?
