    I am curiously about to learn from other projects (not urgently Trimaran boats) and to get an understanding about the potentials of foiling for keeping up Trimarans as the fastest sailing multihulls for offshore and long distance.

    Yesterday came in an interesting news…

    Paul L. opens the container. – Is SailRocket back after a break of nearby 3 years ?

    As powerfully trimarans still have to learn fully foiling - while their compagnions on two hulls (catamarans) do it steadily in different classes onshore and offshore - it will be interesting to see the further progress and knowledge transfer from small to big, from experimental (as seen with SailRocket) to serial multihull building.

    SailRocket 2-the Original World Record Holder

    Testing may resume tomorrow and we should get info soon.

    The cool thing about all this is that we aren't desperate. We don't need to prove anything. We simply want to go out and have a go at it in our own back-yard. We all know what the boat is capable of, it's up to the weather and us as a team not to fumble the ball. If the weather is wrong or we don't get the gust we need to get started... then not much is going to happen. So be it.
    There is one "biggy" which still needs to be resolved and that is third party liability insurance. This is not a ratified record attempt but just really a demo run. Let's see if any of these companies want to be "enablers" rather than dis-ablers. It would be a shame to be denied because of something like that.

    Good to see her rigged again... :) This design is "art", too.
