Great video! As an old 14'er from wayback, the boats impress me now, not so much for the offwind speeds - after all they are skiffs with big assyms - but how fast they have got these 14 foot hulls going upwind. A lot of credit has to go to genius Paul Bieker who came up with a rudder foil that helps fool the water into thinking it has a bigger hull going through.
Glad you liked it. I noticed the rudder foils when the boats were out of the water. Didn't realize that they were there to fool the H2O. Brilliant!
