    Boats and foils comparison

    Certainly guessing the right foils might be very important (in particular if the wind is on the foiling limit). I also find the top section of the mast interesting. Would it be allowed with a horizontal top section (like the end of some airplane wings)?

    Agree

    But would the same foil work with and without an angle?

    Nice design.. Wonder what it would cost to buy and operate..

    Another advantage could be that you are allowed to change 20% (?) of the foil (weight/volume?). Therefore if you have 80% of the weight(volume) you can basically try many different foil shapes without using up your maximum (6) number of different foils you are allowed to test.

    I think it looks terribly slow. All the drop downs must slow them down. I guessed it would be easier to fly in strong winds, but seems as if I'm wrong.

    The code 0 รถ generate a lot of drag.

    That is why you need a combination with solar power.

    Sun and wind powered cars

    I read this https://group.vattenfall.com/who-we-are/sponsorship/vattenfall-solar-team and it got me thinking. If we can do 50 knots on the water with wind, it should not be too hard to go faster than that on land, i.e. given that we can sail in the right direction we should be able to keep up with traffic flow easily with a wind powered car. I guess the main problem is the limits in true wind directions.

    good point

    The arms are one-design I think,

    Exactly, I think it is 20% of the weight and AM+LR have all the weight in the bulb, so they can basically change the rest as much as they want.

    I would find it even more interesting to see them sail against each others.

    Agree, but it was far better in the last two ACs then before. Technology helped. Now you actually know who is leading a race in the middle of a leg.
