I hope you get to watch the America’s Cup. It is on youtube.
But, with the new AC72 class of boats flying out of the water on hydrofoils, ‘foils,’ are we seeing the future of sailing?
Smaller boats have pioneered this technology for some time, and naval vessels have tried these in the past. So have Russian hydrofoils. Check out hydrofoils dot org.
Wouldn’t it be fascinating for the average yacht powered by sail-wings to average over 20 miles an hour? Over 20 knots would be over 22 mph.
I think it would be awesome!
