Different mast rake
Aquitaine is the mast to the right, and has noticeably less rake than Geodis in the background.  Generally more rake is good for going up wind, while less rake is better for running. Changing rake on Geodis is non-trivial because it requires re-tuning the cap shrouds.  I don't know what is required to change rake on Aquitaine... it is possible adjusting rake is fairly easy.   Notice how much more cord depth the wing mast has!
