No dought that it will work wonderful on the multihull, as the function of the sail is concerned. My worries goes to the unstayed mast and the somewhat "flimsy" construction of the soft sail profile. The rigging of a multihull has to stand up to much higher stress/forces than the one of a mono hull, as the multihull has much higher stabillity. So the question will be: can this very interesting rig be used on a cruising multihull (catamaran), or will the weight end up being too heavy? There are lots of other attractive benefits to have with sail, absolutely interesting developement.
It may work even better on the multihull,since the apparent wind is
forward most of the time...
