The web pitch and the picture above look awesome. The spec numbers read like a winner, can’t imagine what the ready to go sail/fly price will total but this looks for real and I hope all goes to plan. Well played.

The drawings make it look like the first(?) boat to have the hybrid wing Randy Smyth has been working on for a couple of years.  Did it make to the final form?

Tommy put a prototype version on his F40. It was featured in Seahorse about a year ago? 

I'm pretty sure I saw this 'hiding' New Bedford, Mass a couple years ago on the way back from Newport-Halifax.

If your a podcast listener, Jim Brown has a couple episodes about how the Eagle Class 53 came about starting with the story of Randy Smyth and the Everglades Challenge where Randy used an early version of the hybrid wing sail.

Jim Brown has tons of interesting podcasts that kept me sane(ish) while striping and fairing the bottom of my boat!  http://outrigmedia.com/outrig/podcasts/

Three episodes apply specifically to this wing mast/sail and the EC 53:
