Follow up article in the April Seahorse by Steve Killing including this:
" After a fairly carefull(close to 1 million dollars on the campaign- dl) experiment in foiling we are comfortable concluding that hydrofoils don't perform in this configuration( 4 foils-dl)on a C Class catamaran. There is no doubt that fine tuning our parameters could increase Rockers speed, but it will take more than fine tuning to make the required leap in performance. We encourage other teams to learn from our mistakes and help push foiling catamarans to the next level."
