    They way I heard it the cat would be faster unless you had to have the hulls in the water due to seastate if the tri has to come off the foils in the same conditions it would be faster, at least that's the way I heard it

    new mini, who says it needs to be beautifull

    If they weren't clearly better, sail area limited rules wouldn't have been using them for the last 40 years starting with the Little Cup boats. This wing is nowhere close to the efficiency of a c-class or AC wing. It is 'only' a variable camber 1 element wing. It lacks the slot for the boundary layer control which enables hi high angles of attack without stalling. This is more like a flap setup.I think we can agree on that, but will this softwing be more efficient than a standard mini sail plan.....

    If they weren't clearly better, sail area limited rules wouldn't have been using them for the last 40 years starting with the Little Cup boats. That's hard wings right? Just wondering if the complexity of trying to do it as a softwing so it is reefable works out better. None of the big french multi's have done it yet....

    Is there anymore information about the wing sail they are using? Is it their own design ? The theory of these being better still doesn't seem to have been proven on real sailing yachts and maybe all the other tech like foils could be making the difference (if they prove to be fast)
