Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
I'm an admitted cynic on these 72s. That said, what is so new here? Cats, wings, foils? All been around for some time. It's only the boat on steroids that seems new.
Also, what controls pitch on these things when they're doing 40 kts?
What's new is that all 3 of those things are combined on one boat, and then super sized.
The rules prohibit moveable control surfaces on the dagger boards and rudders, so instead the entire dagger board can be moved side to side and fore and aft.
