    Race 3-Great video as usual with these boats when there is wind!
    The more I watch the more I think a small center lifting foil on a vertical strut(formerly known as a daggerboard foil) on the main hull would more than pay for itself by keeping the main hull in the air. Without it, the main hull is constantly touching down= drag. In addition, it would be interesting to eliminate the dual rudders and have just a single rudder T-foil on the main hull. Then the "mainhull touchdown" would be eliminated with ,probably, no increase in wetted surface or weight.
