Great idea Mike! If you ever need a 95kg helm to act as a test dummy then just shout.

Still looking forward to seeing that single handed hybrid on the water, I though she looked ace... swapsies for a sail when we are back at the club Cirrus.

Put the forestay behind the kite chute. Seems an obvious solution that most dinghy designers fail to spot.

There's plenty of wind here, we've had days of champagne conditions, I get so I can't even bear to look.. going slowly sane, ordinary, compliant, old.

Think about that first sail   
I think sailing will see a boost in new sailors, people are going to want to do something, try new things.

If that had a symmetrical kite I would be interested.
The one real place no one has a serous go at tackling, a modern lark or scorp.
Well apart from the Merlin lol. But not everyone has 25 grand.

Forestay behind chute ?    

No a conscious design choice - with any very fine bow you can end up with a small and awkward shaped chute if you place the forestay behind.... or the forestay ends up a mile back along the foredeck.  We made a deliberate choice to have a relatively generous and low friction chute arrangement relative to other designs behind the forestay.  The clew on the asymetric is cut high on this craft to really aid crew sight lines offwind and this feature plus the very generous chute proportions make raising/dropping a doddle.  Much of the problem found with some designs has a lot to do with trying to get a large sail area and lowish clewed spinnaker into/out of a (relatively tight and under-sized) chute - regardless of where located....
