    new stuff in the a-class

    Only part of the story, what about the drag of two 17ft hulls in the water pre foiling vs 1 12 ft mono hull and that for me is the major problem for the A's, sail horsepower is just not quite enough to reliably get the A up and onto its foils. Once on its foils then game on. Perhaps the A's...

    There's nothing to stop anyone turning up with a smaller boat, as long as it fits within the box rule and, and here is the problem, it still weighs 75 kilos and only has 14sqm of sail area ( which in my opinion is just too small to reliably power up enough to get 75 kgs + skipper onto foils ) I...

    With the C class boats using the simple system of when you hook onto the trapeze and load the trapeze wire, it lifts the dagger board, aren't we almost at the point where the A's will go towards the 3 foil system just like their big brothers. A question to the knowlegible few who fully...

    new stuff in the a-class

    One thing we found by almost all the Stealth F16 owners, was that when the foils are right at the bottom of the rudder as per the best aerodynamic situation ( gliders went T tails 30 years ago ) they are very vunerable to scuffing and such like when beaching and moving around the boat park...
