Just read Kevin Hutchinson's crabclaw sail test experience. Great that you gave it a 2nd chance Kevin.
Maybe a 3rd try is worth the effort. Some years ago the french sailing magazine http://www.voilesetvoiliers.com/ ran a very ambitious test using 10 different rig typs an Optimists an raced them against each other. The crabclaw came out on top, No 1.
Of course the crabclaw is not the winner in headwinds, overall the French results as well as Marchaj's wind tunnel tests are inspiring.
Anyone else out there with personal experiences of clabclaw sails?
