The three dimensional aspect of wing handling appeals to both sailors and pilots. “Every professional multihull tactical should have wing sailing experience” says Martin Kimbell of Squam Lake, N.H.. Catamarans, windsurfers, and sailboats teach the 2 dimensions, but the physics of wing sailing are unlike anything else.
If kites are ice cream scoopers and windsurfers are knives, then the wing is a potato peeler. It is all about lift, speed, and laminar flow.
