    What i meant, is that the boat is not crashing as soon as the foil breaches the surface, there is no cavitation that propagates the full length and kills lift. Flying/sailing seems safe at that time during the tack. It may not be the fastest mode of sailing when the tip breaches the surface but at least it's not crash mode. Blue sky D.

    Tip of the foil is breaking the surface quite often, but no real issue...

    Ile de France includes Paris and surroundings. IT includes the rich neighborhoods like Neuilly and the more popular immigrant neughborhood like St-Denis. Same for Paris, some arrondisements are for rich people with good hospitals and other arrondisements are more "popular" with older hospitals... Stay safe. D.

    I thought the foils have a limited list of material that can be used to make them. And that they could not use expensive metals like titanium for it's weight. Lead may be forbidden too. So you are left with metal to do the foils Using carbon or honeycomb would be too light and would require huge bulb to reach the weight limit. Using large metal foils meets just the weight limit and therefore no need for bulbs. But if you go to small foils, even in metal, you need the bulb to pass the weight limit... Who are the rules experts who could confirm the list of material for foils? Regards, D.

    No mini bulb, it's a remora taking a ride!!

    Wonder when they will have active directional array, that will increase the range of the drone, much more if you add another active array on the drone itself. Now, what happens when the pilot turns around 180 and the array is unable to beam steer in the opposite direction? Regards, D. PS. Antenna engineer...

    One omnidirectional antenna and the second is a directional array?

    1:15 and 1:40. They fly with the foil on the edge of breaking the surface and dont crash when the foils break out. Seems to be really fast and hull is low/close to the water.

    Let's be honest, whoever is in the lead of a race will be sandbagging. They dont want to show their potential and they want some close race action for TV. The real racing will start for some during the Prada cup and for NZ during the AC. Regards, D.

    Dont forget the wind range was reduced for the AC50 in Bermuda, so the teams built their boats for the conditions. AC50s built like the tractor would have given also an epic spectacle in the high wind range in my opinion.
