Downforce

The designer of the S9 told me that his boat uses downforce as does any multihull with dual independent wand systems like the Rave, Whisper ,Osprey, Skat and IFly 15 cat.

Tf 10

UPDATE: It was just confirmed to me by someone involved in the project, that the boat is designed to foil on all four foils at once. They are using a similar foil system to the Nacra 17, A Cat and Nacra 15: two main surface piercing foils and two rudder foils. See post 62.

F101 Foiling Trimaran

Heres a video of the F101-with her midship/aft wand working well:

No specs giving length and beam so far-unless I missed it somewhere......

More info: http://www.foiling101.com/

DESIGN
Long central hull gets the rudder and main foil further apart, removing some of the limitations and bad habits that other foiling boats suffer from.
All carbon construction: main hull, foils, floats, beams, 2 piece mast.
Very simple, well thought out control systems.
All up weight: 80 kg ( 176lb dl)
Length 5m (16.4' dl)
Beam 2.55m (8.4' dl)
Sail area: 8.5m2 main ( 91 sq' dl) + 7m2 gennaker ( 75sq' dl)
Target crew weight range: 70-120 kg ( 154- 264lb dl)
Take off wind speed: 8kts
Target boat speed range: 10-25kts

I don't see why they put a third hull on that boat?
If the construction is that flat, then what is the benefit of the hull in the middle?

One advantage I see with a foiling trimaran, is that you can make the WW ama and foil lift from the water automatically, so that you don't have to lift the foil on each tack.

This boats looks like a foiling cat with an extra hull in the middle. Which will only cause extra drag?

Maserati

Video of Maserati during the RORC race. At one point early on she flies the main hull high enough to see the "Manta" foil(daggerboard foil similar to the one on Fire Arrow) :

Maserati

There were reports published on the Maserati site during the race that they hit the fastest speeds ever, with their partial foil system, during the night. Must have been a bit scary!

Glad you said partial foil system Doug, at no time did Maserati look like a poised up on the foils boat in that video

They foiled in that race and Malta only on stb tack after the collision on the way to Malta. Nevertheless did some of their fastest speeds ever at night...
