Fascinating shots. I have never seen these windsurfing foils before.

The sport is changing very rapidly at the moment, these are "Wing Sails" and come with a standard board or as her, the foil.

So many foils now, windsurfers, kiters, surfers and even stand-up paddleboards are all using them.

As for racing cats and the like, well its not like it was when was dinghy racing 50 years ago! (they had only just introduced windsurfing to the UK when I was giving up racing because of the pressure of work / international travel )

I remember when America's cup started foiling I did my grumpy old man not real boats muttering and then got completely hooked on the spectacle.
