    These boats were just published in todays Scuttlebutt Europe:

    1- Club Swan 36-retractable foil each side deployed with block and tackle. Foil generates lateral resistance mostly.

    Wow-a single curved foil! I had an idea for a continuous curved foil for a dinghy a few years ago-never did anything with it. Juan K has what looks like a real good set-up.....
