America's Cup: Emirates Team NZ - Up, up and away on foils
Thu, 11 Oct 2012
Emirates Team New Zealand swung by a Friday evening race over three weeks ago after their seventh on the water session. Sail-World's camera caught the action as the AC72 reached down the back of Rangitoto and then gybed before getting up on her foils again for another run down the harbour.
Here we present an image analysis showing what foiling in an AC72 is all about - showing some of the points of technical interest, and track the process of foiling from start to full flight on one daggerboard and a single rudder.
