Pacific Proa cruiser

There was an interesting minimal cruiser in the cove last night. A so called “Pacific” or “Flying” Proa, which carry the outrigger to windward. Main hull appeared to be skin on frame, about 28′-30′ long, beam might be 12′-16′. She had no trouble in sailing all over in this crowed bay, leaving the cove under sail, shunting twice and stopping at the resort dock. I just blinked and they were going the other way, very slick.
