    This boat is probably direct competition for the Waszp except it is directed at lower weight people: http://www.ifly.eu.com/

    When I first conceived of that foil configuration I posted it here and was quite soon "corrected" by Greg Ketterman who pointed out that an outward pointing foil like that would have high drag because it would have high and low pressure on the same side. Later, thru Hugh Welbourns work on the Q 23, I understood that an outward pointing foil can be much more effective if it doesn't produce all the lateral resistance for the boat. Hughs foils are highly angled and the Q23 has a keel fin for lateral resistance.
    I think Hugh Welbourn has made a breakthru in outward pointing foils on the Q23.......

    Peoples Foiler!

    ===========================

    UPDATE-- From Aeronamics website:

    The adventure started in 2014 in The Netherlands at the QConcepts R&D-office, while brainstorming about creating hydrofoiling available for a large group of sailors. Hugh Welbourn joined the team in 2015. After several prototypes and a two-year R&D program we are soon launching the first production model. The result is a practical boat with a modern design using durable materials. The boat brings the joy and excitement of hydrofoiling to a large group of sailors.

    ============
    NOTE: Like the Quant 23 this boat can be sailed without the main foils since she also has a daggerboard. The lifting foils don't develop the lateral resistance for the boat like most lifting foils do.
