Footage from a day out with two factory fresh foiling UFOs. Foolishly, we passed up the chance to match race them and have our own Micro-Americas Cup
David Clarke's foiling UFO sailboat. With friends in Cuttyhunk, aboard Little Wing
Launched the UFO and the S9 yesterday for some comparisons. Still getting familiar with the UFO.
A word of caution: the wand system has a tremendous leverage on the main foil actuating rod. If you have the mainfoil clip deployed holding up the mainfoil, and you demonstrate to your friend how the mechanism works, you will poke the actuating rod through the mainfoil flap. Yes, I get the first UFO Dumbass award! Yea!
Mainsail raising: lube up the track and the bolt rope, align everything, then get behind the boat to pull the halyard. Much easier than standing under the mast. I don't understand why - Dave mentioned something about mast compression.
