Foiler week

Foiler week

Thursday June 10 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Inspired by L’Hydroptere we’re going foiler mad this week on thedailysail. Following the update on Syz & Co, so today we break the story about the British equivalent. Unlike the competition the C-Fly foiling catamaran is not gunning for the outright world speed record. Instead the boffins masterminding the project (including one genuine rocket scientist) has been to design a foiler that will work in a range of conditions, has good handling, fix and forget foils and a speed capability of 40 knots – no slouch for a 26ft long boat.
