It's foiling, right? How ya like the boards?

Looks like a hybrid of an E-scow, crossbred with both; a more modern & much lighter dinghy, with some AC type micro-sized foiling multihull technology thrown in. And it wouldn't surprise me at all if much of the drive behind it originated from some of the brains in Zenda (WI that is, aka Melges country).

what is it!

Hopefully it's the first thread in the new foiling anarchy forum (sponsored by uPtip?) so we can get multihull back from the obcessed.

No (fortunately) not Doug's - he would have bored us shitless with 18 months of pre-amble before producing a 90 sec video showing 5 sec of lurching on foils thereby declaring 100% successful outcome......

He can only dream of such beasties, not only showing some pace and height but lugging 3 full-size blokes about to boot.

All on a foil style that he has declared wouldn't work well - just goes to show what he knows.

Curious that it has a SUI rego on the sail, and sailing off Egypt Point(?) - what's the story morning glory!

Lining up for a crack at the RTI?

Dynamic Stability System has unveiled the Quant23, which after its first preliminary sea trials in Cowes last week has proved itself to be one of its first – if not THE first – fully foiling keel boat.
