    IDEC sporting curved lifting foils. The boat was tested for a long time without foils and they finaly decided that fooils were the way to go. The boat was originally engineered to take foils should they be required.

    IDEC on foils

    Update:


    Victory Joyon
    Francis Joyon (FRA ), skipper of the maxi trimaran IDEC , has won the Tour of the Isle of Wight , in 4 hours and 24 minutes. 1754 boats took part in this classic English .

    " We have consistently exceeded 30 knots , thanks to new foils , but the wind was a little too low and the current too unfavorable to improve our record . If the departure was given one hour later it might have been playable "Said Francis Joyon, who is in his fifth victory .

    The maxi -trimaran IDEC surpassed the Extreme 40 and ICAP, the famous maxi monohull .
