While I love the Foiling Cats and the spectacle they provided, the reality is that it will be hard to see it transition into GP events. There is something about a fully crewed 50+ footer with 10-18 crew executing complex sail changes that is not possible in the 6-8 person Cats.
Maybe its the camaraderie of a larger team that appeals to the owners. Who knows. For me, watching a fleet of TP52's is pretty cool and very fun to watch.
