After the start of the Vendée Globe we received many emails from readers who wanted to better understand how the foils work. Dear readers, don’t miss this video!
Find out everything you wanted to know but never dared ask about foils, with this 3D presentation. With a montage of real images of the boat sailing, and 3D computer modelling, it illustrates very clearly how they are operated and function on an IMOCA 60 like Safran. These funny foils, shaped like Salvador Dali’s moustache, will no longer hold any secrets from you.
