<<The one big challenge with this type of boat will be the takeoffs. In 7 knots of breeze, if you sheeted the sails on, the boat would capsize because there’s so little righting moment available at that speed. With so little righting moment, both sails are almost luffing and it feels wrong. You’re trying to accelerate, but you have to ease the sails so the boat doesn’t heel over.
The way the foil geometry works, as soon as you heel over, you lose a lot of righting moment very fast. So it’s about trying to accelerate with a flat boat, and this is where the big top-panel inversion and the deeper cambers to start the acceleration come in. >>
Hents independent control ov top ov main.
Also for roll tacking? Eg to lode new leeward foil ahed of need.
Like sno skeeing. Erly wate transfer.
