    Looks like the next edition of the Vendee is going to be fast:

    I’m sure the designers know more than me, but I’ve seen video of those super fast foiling cats catching a pontoon in a wave and pitch poling instantly ..

    I’m not sure I understand how HB foiling along fully powered up at 30 knots, behaves when the bow nose dives ...which it surely will in the Southern Ocean.

    I saw an interview with one of the skippers who said that the decelerations were actually less extreme on the previous generation partially foiling 60s than the earlier, daggerboard versions. I wonder how much trimming these foils need and what innovations they incorporate to minimise workload for the skipper.

    The video I posted shows the windward rudder raised, but the previous videos seem to show the rudders with fixed endplates, anyone care to guess how that works?

    >o he won't ever be keeping watch which all other boats do. No, IMOCAs have moved from open cockpit to almost fully enclosed years ago.

    In that case they are breaking Colregs: http://www.nepia.com/media/73229/Col...5-Look-Out.PDF

    You can still keep a lookout from inside an enclosed cockpit. Anything don't think this thread is about singlehanding and colregs.

    You do know they are sailing single-handed, non-stop, around the world.
    It's nice to be important........ but more important to be nice

    Turns out depending on your interpretation... you don't actually need to keep a 'physical eye' on the horizon, you just have to be keeping a watch. Most Radar/AIS etc covers that and provided you respond to the alarms, you're keeping the best watch you can... (which is a lot better than sailors 60 years ago could).

    (I'll put an obvious newb disclaimer here XD, knowledge gathered from various blogs on this very same question).
