Take a look at Oracle’s new L-shaped lifting foils, as caught by Ellen Hoke on SF Bay just the other day. This is one of Oracle’s two ‘test-bed’ AC45s, and you can find more pics in the foil thread here. Does anyone still think the AC72 is going to be sailing ‘in’ the water rather than ‘on’ it? Not us. And the possibility of a 50-knot buoy race might not be far off. Nice.
