BYM News has interviewed naval architect and inventor of the curved
trimaran foil, Marc Lombard, to get his views on the BMW Oracle trimaran.
His opening remark was somewhat scathing: My first impression was that
of a total lack of imagination, the project, as I expected is nothing
other than a super Orma. Taking over our curved foils and the pivoting
mast… that’s already on all the Orma trimarans. This project
does not hold any surprise, except for the accumulation of extreme factors.
Read the rest then argue it out on AC
