The whole redesign of the sail reminds me of the French Vaurien ('vaurien' meaning 'rascal'). This early 50s double-handed design was popular in the 70s and 80s, but 'lost' it in the 90s. A new 'fat boy' sail, new sail material, a modern spi and tech alterations-within-the-class-rules revived the class in the 21th century.
