    Sheeting angles. How does this work?

    I'm used to very close angles on radio sailing IOM and Marbleheads yachts. But this looks crazy. Can any one explain? (pic from Seahorse)

    V70 Power boats

    I saw these boats just powering downwind on the last leg in Melbourne. And it was only in 20 knots of wind. Does anyone know what horsepower these monsters develope? To drive a 14 ton boat up to 30 knots plus, I'm sure someone out there can calculate it.
