How and Why America's Cup Cats Fly

My Hobie may not fly for the Gov Cup (still stuck in PNG), but you mechanically minded and engineering types will find this article interesting.  It describes the hows and whys of the boat design and the winged sails used.

Fun Factoid - a winged sail puts less stress on the boat than a soft sail, while generating more power.  Thus you can make the boat lighter - hence FASTER!
