For "far-out" sail systems check out the Maltese Falcon. This is also an animation but the Maltese Falcon is really out there now sailing and I had a chance to see her in action.

Sheís for sale for like 80 or 85million USD I donít remember....way less than half of what she cost if I recall correctly.

Cool rig but to my eye it didnít go at all with the hull shape or superstructure.....but cool none the less
