    Could there a pressure differential across the wing when the tip ventilates. So instead of cavities forming and exploding off the foil they move sideways until they reach the surface.

    You commented on a discussion I was having with Priscilla, If you hate interaction with me, then why comment. Here’s a deal I won’t comment on your threads and you stay out of mine. I think we will be happier that way,

    Just because I use the words “Incredibly high” doesn’t mean I don’t believe it the tallest building in the word Burj Khalifa is “incredibly high” at 2700 feet I do believe in its existence

    I accept your point, but in the old days, such improvements were the stuff of dreams I once read that nzl 32 the boat that won the America’s cup in 1995, was about 3 minutes quicker from when they started with her. In a race of say 2 hours you divide 3 by 120 to get the percentage increase. That’s an improvement of 2.5 % in speed over the whole campaign. So when you compare 2.5% versus 15% that’s a 600% increase from the days of old.

    According to “the two Italian guys “ these foils are controlled by software. You can independently control each flap to get different results. I might be that time on water is helping to get the bugs outs of the software. However all I’ve done is paraphrase what they said. I don’t really know what computer automation can be done with the flaps. If anyone can add more information on this topic, would be great.

    I don’t think the NZ government would be to happy to hear about this considering the money there given TNZ. If so I expect a massive tax bill heading there way

    Is there a limit on the number of penalties in the starting box

    Just imagine one boat is on its foils and another boat is not when they go into the start box. The boat on its foils could get so many penalties on the opposition that the competing boat might have to 3 or 4 penalty turns before they finish the race

    Since the most of the recent topic seems to bagging the British B1 because B2 looks so different. Has anyone seen videos of B1 getting on its foils. All the videos I’ve seen are when it’s up and running. I thought that B1 might be slow to get up on its legs because no lateral resistance. It would be nice to see a video of it getting up on its foils to confirm this theory any link to a relevant video will be greatly received
