    VOR/IMOCA 68

    So in Clean's write up on the FP there was talk of a foiling joint VOR/IMOCA 68. Anybody else have any more information?

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    From a stern radar tower camera, 04/05 race. You might like 1:00 to 1:10 for some splashiness. Longer version of the above video, with some longer speedy bits. See 3:45-4:20. Some other fun stuff in both of these, up on the boom when swinging, etc. Bruce, Any idea where Ocean Planet is these days?

    Well it won't bend and stay bent like the aluminum, which is huge given the problems that have arisen with uppers in the past few years.

    Interesting......let the foiling wars begin

    Forgive my ignorance, but wouldn't you want the wand in front of the foil to adjust to wave height before the foil was affected by it?

    Chapter 11 for Gunboat

    Where is it and what did it say? Sigh... the "Google it" approach is really lame . Which post? The top one. Reads as follows: "Dutch treat! Should be interesting to see how this plays out.....not an authorized production by the licensee!"

    Any idea if Wendy Schmidt factors into this at all? Her husband Eric is the chairman of the board at Google/Alphabet and their foundation started/funds 11th Hour Racing. They've also owned a number of boats over the years including a Swan 80 and a W46 (until it burned).
