    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Good design tries to foresee the unforeseen and tries to have a failure mode that limits damage/danger. The class rule was written with the idea of easy replacement of the bowsprit for what ever reason without hull work.

    Which seams to imply that the connection of the bowsprit is stronger than the hull. Not a fail mode that you would what to design on purpose.

    17.5 The bowsprit shall not be bonded to the hull and must be removable for easy replacement. Not what I would call rule compliant.

    Just like most plywood skiffs built in NZ and AU 40 years ago.

    Boats and foils comparison

    perfectly valid. I'm not suggesting anhedral is best. Just possible reasons why designers may look at it. Finding the design compromises required to come to an optimal solution is way beyond me. But it's very interesting try to understand how designer's are thinking. This is the difference between the AC and SailGP!

    Anhedral gives the possibility of advantages in two possible areas separate control over vertical and horizontal life due to separate control of the flaps on each side improved beach tolerance due to the fact that whole foil don't break surface at the same time, gradual loss of life.

    Come AU to know what that means!

    Looks like the rig came straight back, forestay attachment failure, is my call.

    I would call BS on the idea of the hull end-plating to the water. Ineos's hull does a very good job end-plating the rig already with it's side acting like wingets. Look at the bottom of the AC50's wings they where all closed to the centre end plate with physical contact. A 250mm flight gap would drop the theoretical from 2 to 1.4 while 1.250m flight gap would drop it say 1.25. So yes close is better but is closing bellow 250mm worth the cost of contact?

    So are your saying that the other team just did seat of the pants flight control looking at the horizon?

    13.10 The foil wing shall include at least one cavity of 80 mm in length and 15.6 mm internal diameter that contains a supplied ultrasonic transmitter permitted by 23.1 (f), or a casing of equivalent size and weight. For the avoidance of doubt, the above cavity or cavities shall comply with Rule 13.6.
