Look Ma, no wires...

I had watched these interesting little sailboats in Spain during my last trip to the Mar Menor. There are no stays or wires connected. Both jib and main are on free standing poles. Amazing little crafts and I wonder why in this age of carbon fibre tubes no one else did come up with such a great idea. These boats had been sailed by two handicapped people and the regatta was intense with lot´s of wind and waves. They looked great out on the water with their colourful liveries.

Looks like fun thingies... never ever saw a jib hoisted like that, - on a stick.
