    I'm not sure but the InfoTrack's big spinnaker-type headsail didn't look fast at all! Were they expecting the wind holes coming sooner?

    No canting keel with additional lifting angle, and small slightly curved asymmetrical board, which fights the straight-lined keel. How will they produce negative leeway? And skimming with maybe max 200 kg of lift?

    Fazisi Front Page

    There's an another book about Fazisi. "Race to Freedom" by Vladislav Murnikov. It is a good read. I wonder how well should Fazisi have done, had it been up to the original specifications on page 150: Displacement 38,200 lbs, Sail area 2800 sq.ft., SA/Disp. 38, Disp./Length 57. Built/modified numbers turned out: 49,000, 2700, 32, 73. Steinlager 2 numbers for comparison: 77,000. 4300, 38, 114.

    New imoca boats

    Mast (and ballast) is now just in the pivot point of pitch, so it does not hop up or down in chop. That saves energy. Comanche seems to bring less wash over deck.

    The boom underside has a kink just at the wang point. On the other hand, flexible boom is fast in chop: wang sheeting mode!

    The guestion is: Has R88 the new balance act? Short waterline reaching no bow pissing? Seen in Comanche with Spithill. Is it reality? Does R88 have it too?
