New Monohull Foilers 2016

This boat is probably direct competition for the Waszp except it is directed at lower weight people: http://www.ifly.eu.com/

R Class-2016

These two videos are of the R Class which legalized foiling a few years ago-these videos were shot this year, I think :

Keep your eye on the boat on the left and watch closely as the crew flies:

Doesn't it look like this:
Name:  Curved foils 010.JPG
Views: 1143

(by Doug, 2011,
Dinghy Design: Open 60 influence? )

or, even more, like that:
New Monohull Foilers 2016-mammoth.jpg
(by myself, 2013,
New Technology:Quant 30-Twin DSS Foil Equipped Keelboat )

The layout, with the enormous wings, seems to fit a bigger, ocean-going boat as well as the small dinghy...

When I first conceived of that foil configuration I posted it here and was quite soon "corrected" by Greg Ketterman who pointed out that an outward pointing foil like that would have high drag because it would have high and low pressure on the same side. Later, thru Hugh Welbourns work on the Q 23, I understood that an outward pointing foil can be much more effective if it doesn't produce all the lateral resistance for the boat. Hughs foils are highly angled and the Q23 has a keel fin for lateral resistance.
I think Hugh Welbourn has made a breakthru in outward pointing foils on the Q23.......

===========================

UPDATE-- From Aeronamics website:

The adventure started in 2014 in The Netherlands at the QConcepts R&D-office, while brainstorming about creating hydrofoiling available for a large group of sailors. Hugh Welbourn joined the team in 2015. After several prototypes and a two-year R&D program we are soon launching the first production model. The result is a practical boat with a modern design using durable materials. The boat brings the joy and excitement of hydrofoiling to a large group of sailors.

============
Frequently Asked Questions: http://aeronamics.com/boat/
============
NOTE: Like the Quant 23 this boat can be sailed without the main foils since she also has a daggerboard. The lifting foils don't develop the lateral resistance for the boat like most lifting foils do.

Foiling(?) Scow Mini /Soft Wing Rig(w/slot)

Check this out: https://www.facebook.com/notes/team-...40310426057308

Unlike the IMOCA 60's with their Dali foils that don't foil(foil assist only), this boat has rudder T-foils a necessary ingredient for foiling-so it might actually foil.....
