I'm sure at some point you'll have to depower, even if it's at 40 kts boatspeed rather than 30.


Would the hit of the extra weight of a wingsail work since its not pitching around? I think being able to depower was a huge plus for wings?


I'm boatless.

Hey, I'll be in Southampton next Saturday (my son is starting at the other university there), anybody knows if this boat will be visible somewhere around then?

[Mmm, the southampton boat show will still be going then, but 20 to see one boat is pretty steep!]

That looks nice but it seems to be built on an A-cat chassis. If you had your druthers about which boat you'd like to foil in ocean conditions, would you take this, the Phantom, or the FCS20?

The boat is based at Weston Sailing Club on Southampton Water post the show......please pm me for more details of how to see it and possibly test sail.....

The platform you see at the moment is a fresh built platform (not an A class although very similar in lines) that was constructed to test foils and foil control theories.....all up sailing weight is 78kgs......final platform will be radically different in its construction and will come in at around 65kgs all up sailing weight.....first customer boats available late january/early february 2015....this prototype boat has been tested on Southampton Water and the Solent (which can be quite lively!) in quite varied conditions as well as being put through the big wake off the back of the ferries that travel between Southampton
and the Isle of Wight and has performed magnificently.....can understand your pessimism but have to say it has outperformed everyones expectations involved in the project....how it compares against the FP and the FCS in full 'ocean' conditions.....time will tell.....

Sure, but what if you don't plan on sailing "ocean conditions" with your future boat?

Kind of like me considering snow tires in the tropics...

For future reference, snow tires work pretty f-ing awesome in the dirt.

Interesting, Karl. How about sugar sand? Seems that's about all we have here...

Nothing but big fat paddle tires work in sand in my experience.
