The changes in sailing had been on the horizon for a while. The turning point we can all point to was the last America’s Cup with foiling catamarans.In the Vendee Globe, the boats which have foils are clearly faster.
I believe I read that Joyon cut the jig down on Idec for this attempt; making it an easier boat to handle. Just look at the numbers he is putting up.

Wow! I wonder what the top speed they clocked! The average is a bit faster than we ever saw in a Tech dinghy! Thanks for sharing Stephen!
