Q. How does foiling affect strategy & tactics?
A. The speeds increase and the angles decrease. Strangely, there seems to be more of an advantage downwind to be in front than behind. The dirty air and turbulent water your sails and foils produce really makes it hard for a trailing boat to gain. As a whole, tactics become more critical as maneuvers are costly; you can’t just change your mind and tack or gybe back the other way so easily as you can on a traditional boat.

Foiling coming to +SailX - Sailing Simulation  soon ... ;-)

This is the challenge: Appealing to sailing's relatively wealthy fanbase AND achieving massive distribution.
Stewart Hosford of Alex Thomson Racing - Stop talking about Sailing start talking about Adventure, Sustainability, Environmental Protection, Human Endeavour.

The days of the Here is my dream proposition are long gone. Must present a business proposition with an identified ROI (return on investment). The ROI must clearly identify the key benefits received back by the sponsor.
