parallel sails?

I was looking at the Hobie Trifoiler ( Hobie TriFoiler History ) and it got me wondering, how do parallel sails like this work in practice? It appears they'd be fine until you're abeam the wind, and then you'd have only one sail.

I'm pondering duplicating a setup similar to this on one a kayak/trimaran I may be building soon.

Thoughts? suggestions?

Thanks.
