WOW!

Performance looks terrific, surprisingly smooth and stable, and the design and attention to detail could land it in a museum of modern art.

New(unnamed) cat?

From the Foiling Week(April 2015) :
http://www.foilingweek.com/blog/2015...nned-for-2016/

"The new full carbon formula foiling multihulls (20 footers) will have a ‘box rule’ to allow innovation and cost control. Every boat builder is welcome to join the race with his own design."

14' S9 "Stunt" Foiler

S9 at The Foiling Week--from www.catsailingnews.com-an excerpt from the article:

All of the S9s appeared to be achieving the same angle and speed as the Phantoms and were undoubtedly easier to sail giving the crews a very stable platform. The S9s appeared to sail higher and faster upwind than the Whisper. It was easy to get a measure of this as the S9s shared the same gate as the Phantoms, Whisper and the Moths. The gate was only 50 metres wide and around 50 foilers sharing the gate led to some very interesting moments!

The next day saw a 20knt breeze and half metre rolling waves. The S9s performed incredibly well in these conditions, Steve hitting 17knts upwind and Federico 24knts downwind with Michele and Vincenzo first and second respectively on the race course showing greater all round ability on the boat.

The Stunt S9s created significant interest with those watching from ashore and competitors on the water. This small boat was sailing as fast and high and in perfect balance against some giants of the foiling world.

NACRA 17 Full Foiler

From Nacra in the UK: uses 2 main foils and two rudder foils. It would be interesting to know what effect the two main foils lifting has on RM and if the rake of the windward board is neutralized(or set negative) to allow more righting moment. And can the lee board lift the majority of the boats weight by itself?
