    Thanks Corley! I can't open the wing file but the Rule PDF was great.

    It's a 3D file but I don't have a viewer that supports it either. Looks like there are extensions in Rhino and Solidworks that should open it.

    No flaps allowed which means no wands which means its UptiP foils for sure. Rake and cant adjustable as for the 72's.
    Rudder foil(wing) adjustment(rake/angle of incidence) 3 degrees while racing.

    If it says "no flaps" that won't ban wands or other height control sensors.

    ===============
    A wand or similar would have to move the whole daggerboard-I don't think it could on these boats w/o having too much drag. We'll see.

    35th America's Cup

    From Cat sailing news ( http://www.catsailingnews.com/ ) :

    Press Release sent by TNZ / Warren Douglas. August 8, 2014

    "The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron has lodged a challenge for the 35th America’s Cup.
    Out-going Commodore Steve Burrett announced that the challenge would go ahead at the Squadron’s annual meeting last night.

    The Squadron will be represented by Emirates Team New Zealand. Challenges must received by the defending yacht club, the Golden Gate Yacht Club, by midnight Friday, San Francisco time.

    The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron has been involved with all but one New Zealand America’s Cup campaign since 1987, winning at San Diego in 1995 and successfully defending at Auckland in 2000.

    Mr Burrett said: “New Zealand has a distinguished history in the America’s Cup and we expect Emirates Team New Zealand will once again make New Zealand proud, just as it has done many times in the past.
    “We wish the team well and we look forward to contributing to the success of the 35th America’s Cup.”

    Emirates Team New Zealand CEO Grant Dalton says the team is pleased to be able to be in a position to challenge with the confidence of being able to represent the country well. “This is the official start of a long, hard journey. We do not under-estimate the challenges ahead.

    “We look forward to working with the other teams to create a great event"
