simply not true. Any "slowness" as a result of the slightly(10 degrees) angled rig* could be remedied on a turbo version of the boat by simply using a canting rig while maintaining the advantages of the angle of heel relative to the use of UptiP foils.
The angle of heel greatly simplifies the handling of the boat.
* google "trimaran"
and you'll see that the majority of tri's sail at an angle of heel......
