Edmond de Rothschild, the first foiling MOD70, has shown her paces in sailing trials off Lorient . (See video link below*) The MOD70 class is a One Design 70ft ocean racing trimaran that can reach speeds of 40 knots plus. Who knows what speed a foiling MOD70 might achieve? This awesome flying machine makes my mind boggle. You would think she was completely symmetrical, but she has an ‘L’ – shaped foil to port and a ‘C’ – shaped one to starboard.
