You may be correct on Kappa using Challange, but they didn't list it in the quote they gave me in Annapolis, and I forgot to ask (assuming it would be on the quote like everyone else)

the mitre panels they use increases the life of the sail and improves performance (according to them), they claim it "flattens as the breeze increases, since the threadline in the panels are rotated around a curve that straightens with more load" and they told me this results in less fatigue on the sail resulting in longer life. not sure how much I beleive that or not.
