I would suggest you do a little search on two subject threads that the owner contributed to:
Owner's call name: Kojii
Boats name: Orca

1) WishBone Sailing Rig - Boat Design Forums
2) Aftmast rigs??? - Page 44 - Boat Design Forums

San Francisco Bay, January 2015. Fresh breeze. The staysail has earned my admiration. It is versatile and dependable and without drama.
In February, same area, breeze went to 30 knots and we were heading for the marina under staysail alone. I let her fly. It goes boom vertical at times. The gust deepens the pocket. We ride the wave for a bit. The gust blows by and the boom follows it down nice and easy squeezy. Five knots with following sea and staysail doing all the work. Reminds me of Marchaj's discussion of the crabclaw. Oddly, com la grand-voile of the Marconi rig, it is our first sail up and our last down.
