As a recent post on our friends Sailing Anarchy‘s website says, “Something about foilers attracts the truly eccentric, the totally obsessed, and occasionally, the clinically insane.  We’ll leave the evaluation of which camp the inventor of this thing falls into to you guys…but listen to the music in this video carefully for a clue.  It’s ostensibly a test bed for a foiling sailboat…”

    This designer must be insane! Oh wait, that’s me! Thank you for your article. I think it looks a bit like a space ship from Star Wars. By the way, Valkyrie now has sails. Pictures and video can be seen at my blog corycraft.blogspot.com
