Re: sailing past close hauled?

I dont think i would want a keel on SanderOs theoretical boat. I think light and fast would be the way to go,maybe a tri, maybe foiling. Higher apparent wind speed, less hull in the water, less drag, no big hunk of lead to cart around. I still dont think you could sail straight upwind though. I dont think the technology currently exists to overcome all drag.
