Do you have video? It usually helps see whether you have too much/little lift on the foils and other issues.Need some help from my UFO Foiler friends. I’ve been sailing the UFO for almost two years now but still having a hell of a time with sustained flight. I’ve owned and actively raced many boats including a Prindle 18-2 and a Hobie 17 so not new to sailing. I’m 70” tall and 210 lbs. I’ve watched DRC’s videos over a dozen of time but capsize to windward more often than I would like to admit. Matter of fact, I’ve capsized the UFO more times then all the other boats combined.
Below is my speed track in knots from Sunday on Superior Bay Duluth. A lot of kite sailors were out since the winds were 10- 13 knots with gust to 17. I sit on the middle pad, feet in far hiking strap. The wand has 12-15” showing above the strut. I get going and up (silent wake) and as can been seen from the graph, speed goes to zero (there are several parking events where I didn’t stop my Garmin Instinct watch). The higher speeds are on a beam/broad reach. I did have a great recovery where I almost capsized but pulled it out – rowing helps.
Looking for any advice anyone may have.

Had you made changes to the boat? Some custom mods interfere...
