    This is pretty cool and from the Daily Sail. I couldn't read the whole article because I'm no longer a member but the significant thing is that the boat is using wands. And wands on a kite foiler is a perfect match because if the kite lifted a bit too much the wands would cause the foils to develop down force!
    It's a modified A Cat.......
