    ^ Sim software is very good these days. They will fly but it will be like chariot racing?

    Should this be on the trickle down thread?
  3. It does answer the question of the topic though - generally.

    ^ Been in the blue water, in a storm in a multi? Even more scaring than in a monohull. But The big round the world multies have shown it possible and even getting to grips with that challenge. However AC is about pushing the boundaries and these mono-multies are about halfway between. As witness the ocean racers of today, amazing boats, and AC and it's egos have broken the new ground and paid for the tech to get there. I would have loved to see wings again because the kite/wing area is there to be explored to blast us onto some even more amazing boats. There are plenty of one design, match racing regattas now, we need the AC and it's egos to throw the ball further out there.

    In a Moth world championship if there is not enough wind to foil, are races postponed? I think it is the Defender/COR design that only half of the racing time will be foiling. Like AC34 maybe they will be surprised?

    It seems we have the best of both worlds. Races at half the speed in low wind conditions, and foiling boats for the higher wind conditions. Personally I don't care if they are faster than the F50s or not as long as they foil some of the time. How many races are 100% foiling in the moths? All? Or do some part races happen not foiling?

    Thanks all above, I get the picture from both sides!

    Has Team NZ set up a competitor forum up yet? I guess it is a bit early yet but after the dead line will it?

    @maxmini I don't think your assertion is a reasonable one max.
