Testing Videos

Some moving pictures showing testing of Paradox V2.0.
The new foils are promising, with the boat feeling very lively and free.
Quantitative measurements back up the qualitative feedback.
As already mentioned, the principal benefit is ease of use: The foils require no intervention by the sailor.
Tacking performance is also better and handling is very forgiving.
As you can see in the videos, we are working through different specimens of the new foils, mainly to quantify loads and validate the structural specs.
We are also testing different toe-in angles, all less extreme than those that were required for the V1 foils.
