...and expensive...
...but definitely more durable and therefore quite possibly having better value than the current rigs. The full-length battens should considerably reduce flapping, which is what really kills sails.

That's true. Current radial sails stay 'in shape' for about 30 days of heavy use... Currently, we're estimating to go through 3 sails this year... On the calendar are nearly 100 sailing days, including 30 training days. Starting with a brand-new sail from Tuesday on in Portugal. On training days, an older sail will be used.
