    Whisper Foiling Catamaran Sailors

    sorry if Im intrude here , I would like to clarify some technical aspects of S9. this cat was born and raised in Cesenatico, here there are shallow waters, steep waves, wind or light or strong. tilting the rudder at 45 ° allows you to have more immersed rudder surface therefore more control, using the vertical elevating rudder system we did not have enough surface immersed to govern the boat. S9 is designed to do foiling but also semiplanning mode (floating), this to facilitate those who have never used a catamaran (an evolutionary path using only one cat, S9 is the only foiling boat that can do this), so these rudders were the best way. however we often noticed that we could take the sea only by adjusting main sail and jib without using rudders, even with 1.5 m waves. I do not like L foils , too much torsion in higth speed , T shape much more balanced . p.s.: Im wery wery happy about Martin and Charlie work around foilingboat tests , this make more clear many things , hope you go on mates . regards . Michele

    If many sailor do not like foiling but prefer classic A why use rules that allow foiling also with c boards ?. Better make rules like UACC classic A cat .

    I remember tha Winglets arent legal in A cat Classic Association in Italy and France , this because the boat can not fly without winglets.

    Bucket List

    There is a slightly higher percentage of drag, but with this system of foils you can keep the maximum speed constant so get an excellent VMG. With this small S9 we have reached 25 knots speed. When flying at high speeds, the apparent wind is greath , so there are no lateral lift on sails, therefore consequently also little lateral lift and turbulence on vertical profiles immersed.
