    Here is some info from Ian Ward on these fantastic, patented, add-on foils. They're being used now on the Skeeta, Aero, Open Bic, Melges 14, Laser and others including one catamaran I know about. click on "learn more"... https://www.glidefree.com.au/

    NOTE-the standard foil does not develop downforce but can be modified to do so.
