I have a feeling these things might actually foil.

BTW Jake, you can see the L foils in the video of ETNZ. At 1:09 in the video it looks like it's damn near flying . . .

Thanks. I'm wondering if the back beam can be trimmed?

Are the 72's all going to be of the same design/builder, like the 45's, or is it a 'box' rule, where we may see some vatiations?

Several of the rules I like:
No trim adjustments to foils
No water ballast
No boundary layer technology on hulls
Manual power only (no more generators, etc.)
Limited use of electronics, wireless, weather tracking, etc.
Inclusion of cameras and microphones for spectators.

Why the center hull? Seems like extra weight for no gain in performance? I don't get it.
