Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Prior posts make it apparent we are going to have to learn a whole new lexicon to describe and understand what these boats are doing. It seems to have no similarity to the boats we sail. A primer on the controls and physics of these boats would be helpful. So far have just read brief descriptions in Sail and like rags. ?Can anyone supply a more detailed discussion. I believe all that grinding is to handle the foils and change the conformation of the main wing.
