Re: AC72 - On Foils

If the foils aren't adjustable, the ones that are optimized for the conditions on an actual race day will likely prevail that day. Could be interesting. Hydroptère has shown how adjusting foils can make a big difference. Some of these guys may get bad cases of the (comparative) slows if they can't tweak things.
