F 70: A full-foiling daysailer / racer
Published on March 19th, 2021
Following their work with the 36th America’s Cup, Persico Marine and Carkeek Design Partners introduce the F 70, which they describe as a full-foiling daysailer/racer. The main foils combined with the rudder T-foils are designed to fly the F 70 at 10 knots of wind. The custom F 70 foil retracting and control systems use the latest technologies developed for the America’s Cup and IMOCA boats, so as to offer safe yet precision flight control and modes in all conditions. As the foils must be stored to allow the boat to berth normally, a unique system is employed to achieve this function at rest mode. For details, click here.
