A decade too early - Weta foil 2008

November 27th, 2017

Weta foil design brief:

- One person rig, launch, retrieve and stow

- To be used for recreational and racing

- To give a high tech foil experience for a reasonably experienced sailor

- Must be robust with a rig tolerant of reasonable error

- To be sailed comfortably in a range of sea conditions in up to 20 knots of wind

- To keep in touch with an A cat upwind but have a good controllable downwind performance

- Easily dismantled for shipping

- Retail around USD20,000

The concept had great promise but it was hard to beat the simplicity, stability and versatility of the classic Weta.
