    best new foiler for beginner?

    Great episode. Can't wait for the next one!
  2. Does the world series count to the AC or the Prada cup, even a little bit, as it used to?

    49er learning curve

    This large mixed fleet racing on a small lake looks so cool. Amazing that there are 100+ boats on the line in the middle of the winter.

    Last day of racing was really good. Tom's commentary was interesting, so was the silver fleet racing! Great interviews as well. Interesting that Amac is betting on the larger wings, while Greenhalgh is saying the small wings of the Bieker is better. Also, KA stopped making standard non-DS sails? Are we really at the point where they are really that good in the light marginal winds? Straight booms could really make a comeback with the kingposts getting longer again, otherwise the mast could just snap if the boom is attached higher up.

    Coverage and commentary was really good with just only two drones. Really good job! If only the video quality could be better. I'd rather watch a full length recording in good quality than shitty quality live though.

    Lots of on-the-water pictures, but hard to see the technical details. Would be cool if you could take some in the dinghy park. Thanks!

    There was a scow with double T main foils at the worlds in Australia a couple of years back. With the AC75s using somewhat similar configurations I wonder if we'll see some new concepts being competitive anytime soon?

    I'd be interested to see the Mach2.5 going against the top boats. Btw, does the aero wing really provide significant forward thrust that outweights the drag penalty of the relaively bigger wings compared to the more contemporary designs?

    18ft Skiff Cuff Luff

    It sure looks like the same rig. Not surprising that this sort of innovation doesn't not come from Europe in this class, though.

    EUROPEAN WASZP SLALOM

    It was definitely fun to watch live. I was hoping that they would upload the replays in higher quality though.

    WASZP - International Games PERTH

    The drone coverage of the slalom is really good. Reminds me of a mr. Clean video of the '09 moth worlds, that he did from a top of a hill. Cool vantage point.

    Assembled and almost rigged in 3 minutes. Awesome. It takes me longer to get the cover off of my boat and fold it

    ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    Can someone give me the measurements of the main and rudder horizontal foils? New big main foil looks quite a bit bigger. Anyone has the span of that? Thanks
