    I just hope the spars and running and standing rigging have been beefed up to take the extra forces!

    I understand hydrofoils fine.......
    I don't understand how their design incorporating only two struts can handle lift, steering, and be located so far aft.

    This dynamic is a lot more interesting than hydrofoil dynamics.
