If by A rig you mean Joe Norwood's (author of High Speed Sailing)
pyramid rig, I have never heard of anyone trying it. Suspect it would
be pretty heavy by the time it was stiff enough.

We have one guy talking about a 16' harry on foils, but he has not got
past talking about it. Making the foils work in both directions is
the tricky part, and may well outweigh any possible advantage.
