SPEEDFOILER™ – THE NEXT LEVEL IN SAIL RACING

Speed Foiler

The new class will guarantee exact starting times and maximum action in all wind conditions between 1 and 30 knots. Perfect for live TV, online videostream, spectators and event planners/programme.  

The SpeedFoiler™ Multihulls will present the most advanced technique in sailing sports. Superlight. Full carbon.

The breathtaking speed (up to 70 km/hour) as well as the spectacular view of the foiling catamarans will excite the performers, the audience and the media equally.

The new SpeedFoiler™ will have a “box rule” to allow innovations and steadily technical development, cost control and highest quality.

The technical rules will be influenced by A/B/C-Class catamarans and the racing rules by landsailing.

As long a foiling multihull are not in a foiling mode, an giant CodeZero may be the ultimate go. (shown by M2 and M1 catamaran concept from Suisse). We can use a flat CodeZero also for powerful upwind trapeze sailing in very light winds. As soon the foils will lift the hulls out of the water, we do not need a CodeZero any more. The boats will be so fast, you may only need a main and jib on all courses.

This are the first specifications so far for the new SpeedFoiler™:

 

Lenght………….  7.6 mts  (25 foot)

Width……………  4.2 mts

Jib……………….   8-12 sqm

Main…………….   28 sqm (incl. mast area)

CodeZero……..   40 sqm

Masthight……..   12 mts
