AC72’s can foil which means that they can fly on water using daggerboards and foils on the end of those boards. The boards and foils must hold up 18 tons. They cannot foil under 18 knots. Foiling is like hitting a turbo and boosts their speed 35-40%.
Foiling consists of a 3 part platform.

I attended the America’s Cup Racing Fleet races yesterday in SF. Got a few more excellent pics. As always you can check out my Flickr Gallery.But what is most notable are the people I’m noticing at the races. I’m perching myself at this location
Yesterday I noticed the diversity was better. I noticed Lesbians, and Gay Dads. They were all having fun, and enjoying the races just like everyone else.
