    Info about "Absolute dreamer" , a start up created by J-P Dick ( co-share holder among others) to be not only a technical support for his race boats but also for developing innovative technics like a robot for building foils and cut down the costs :

    The two images seem to show different foil configurations, but the comments from the designers only mention the V shape. Is it supposed to be convertible? Or has there been a design change? Or am I just seeing it wrong?

    Doug, they look the same to me. If you look through the jib on the bottom picture you can see the foil-and tip- on the stb side which appears to be the same as the upper picture. Happy New Year!

    OK, I see it now. I was looking at the foil in the foreground of the lower picture & not realizing that the lower part was the reflection, not the foil itself. I think maybe it should have been shaded differently.
    Happy New Year to you too!
