Team Maserati:

NEW DEPARTURE PLANNED FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT WEEK


January 16, 2018
Maserati Multi70 and the crew are still in standby for a few more days in Hong Kong.
The team studied the weather situation and it persuaded skipper Giovanni Soldini to change the departure plans.
“A nice wind starts blowing from North-East at the end of this week, due to the arrival of a cold front on Japan. It would let us depart for the Hong Kong-London route at the beginning of next week” explains Giovanni Soldini. “In addition, according to the last weather models, the stationary hurricane in front of Madagascar is moving South and it’s becoming a depression: the general situation is getting more standard in the Indian Ocean. Because of this news we decided to wait for a few more days and depart with a better weather window.”

DL, you are just bloated full of defecation.

A questioning word in your shell-like ear.

Not that you will listen since your hugely inflated ego blocks all communication or criticism.

Ever heard of Derek Kelsall and Eugene Rigudel?

Kelsall designed a trimaran named VSD.

There were two built, and VSD 2 won the long distance Transat en Double.

Both of them had inverted T type lifting foils under the MAIN hull.

The year for the first VSD, a 52 foot trimaran foiler was 1978 and VSD 2 the following year.

You didn't know that?

Because if you did you wouldn't SHOUT out your bonkers claims of being the first with your (copyist) pond toy, how many years later, 36-37 bloody years?

There were other designs that followed soon after with T foils under the main hull, the most notable (or infamous) was the 85 foot maxi foil trimaran Charles Heidsieck. You obviously don't know about that boat either, otherwise you would have kept your ridiculous claims to yourself.

Will post images tomorrow just to enlighten you some more?

I've never forgotten the Charles Hiedsick tri. She was ridiculously cool at the time. She had small amas with surface piercing hydrofoils, a t foil on the main hull, and the akas were shaped like B-24 wings.
