Trifoiler-style foils on IMOCAs?

Postby Robert Biegler » Mon Sep 10, 2018 7:44 pm

Is there anything to prevent IMOCAs from using Trifoiler-style foils on either side of the hull, perhaps attached to the outriggers that provide a broad base for the standing rigging? One constraint is that there should be only one degree of freedom to how the foils move, but that condition would be met. Or would such foils be inferior to the Dali foils for any reason?
