Biplane Rig cat II

Radical Bay 8000 from Schionning Designs: "The biplane’s main advantage over more conventional rigging systems is that it splits the required sail area into two smaller, equal-sized units and places them on each hull rather than the centre of the craft, as on conventional catamarans. The boat becomes much easier to handle, but more importantly, the rig’s centre of effort is significantly lowered, making for a much safer boat (the threat of capsizing, a cat sailor’s worst nightmare, is dramatically reduced)."
