Foiling has a place, but it is not “sailing;” nope, not to me! Helmets? Please!
Much flotsam and jetsam flowing about “foils and foiling” and has, basically, removed hulls from water and also removed boat boat hulls from sailors.
Not the splendid engagement I learned to love! For me, foils and foiling are not “sailing” as I see it!
If the metaphor or irony coalesce, the current foils must have persons like Fox, McAlpine-Downey, Sarby, Luders, Stephens, and a host of others, who went off into the sunsets, swamped in their tombs!
