    Inflated Wing Sails

    Hey all you fuckheads! A wing does nod need camber or twist. Not on aircrafts and not on sailboats. It's the same you morons. Does a camber and twist increase performance? Sure but does this mean this can't be better than a triditional sail? You can even take a plank of wood and at about 7 degrees of angle of attack it will create its maximum lift. Which is still in the same range as a traditonal sail. Sails are great because they are practical and not because they perform very well. Downwind this is not not different from a traditional sail. A headsail would improve the Performance as with any other sail. Stop complaining from the couch, if you don't know what you're talking about, never seen it, sever sailed it. Solong and fuck off you fuckheads.

    do you think the melges 14 will catch on?

    now that's what I call a comprehensive answer! I had one similar to that prepared but - without the drawings - more words like "idiot", "stupid Naval Architect", etc init when my pc crashed - so I never sent it. But thanks JR, now everyone should finally understand this. I have one comment to add (for those who still haven't got it). As long as you don't attach the halyard to the boat but to the mast (somewhere), the force that pushes the mast into the boat is not affected by the type of halyard, position, or reeving. Thats probably what the f***ing Naval architect meant but some i***t didn't understand it. It "only" affects the compression force (and therefore the compression stress) within the mast. If you however tiey down the halyard somewhere in the boat (e.g. with a pulley and a cleat), then the force is transmitted to the boat and the mast is pushed down harder into the boat.

UFO vs Wasp, is that all there is so far? shoreline showing crashing moth in waves and then the UFO in ultra flat water? it that the best you've got?

    USD 7600 is some serious pricing for what you get! cool stuff. what other boats do you get for that money? Laser pico? BIC? Optimist?

    looks cool. smaller than I assumed from the first picture. But thinking about it (and comparing to other populare foiling classes) it's kinda obvious .
