Re: sailing past close hauled?
The concept is not very different from the way a sloop works... the lift is UP and FORWARD and normal to the wind direction.... ie directly INTO the wind.
To sail off the eye of the wind.... the sail/foil needs to rotate and then a keel is needed to prevent leeway.
Don't have time today to make some concept sketches... use your imagination.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
