    Volvo's New Boat:

    Final decision, for the time being ,is to go with 60' monohulls equipped for full foiling using a main foil similar to the IMOCA 60's but including port and stb rudder t-foils-the missing ingredient(banned by the IMOCA rules) for full flying instead of limiting to foil assist.
    The in-port races of the Volvo will be held in 30-50' foiling cats.......
