HISTORY AND FUTURE OF FOILING It feels like foiling is an entirely new and exciting part of our sport. Yet in reality it has actually been around for many years. Here's an insight into how it has evolved

RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

H

ydrofoiling, or ‘foiling’ as we call it these days, seems like a new, exciting thing in our sport. Exciting, definitely, but new? Not so much. The first hydrofoil boat may well have been invented by accident when in 1861 an Englishman called Thomas Moy set out to study the aerodynamic properties of wings by observing the swirls they created underwater. A sort of very primitive form of tank testing to find out more about fluid dynamics. Moy’s test tank was the

Surrey canal, and he attached wings to his waterborne vessel to begin the observation. The trouble was, the boat started to rise from the water. The wings had lifted the craft clear, making Moy the first, accidental inventor of hydrofoiling. The first ‘intentional’ inventor of hydrofoiling is believed to be the Italian Enrico Forlanini who developed the first prototype in 1905. Having already designed and built a steam-powered helicopter that successfully took off and landed


over the next decade, culminating in the HD-4 which was powered by two powerful 350-horsepower engines loaned by the US Navy. In 1919 the HD-4 set a world marine speed record of 61.58 knots, a record that lasted for ten years.

Sail-powered hydrofoiling

with a total flying time of 20 seconds, the inventor turned his attention to designing a ladder system of foils under the hull of a motorboat with a 60 horsepower engine and two counter-rotating air propellers. The boat took off out of the water and reached 36.7 knots, a very impressive speed for the early 20th century, a speed which later improved to 43.2 knots across the waters of Lake Maggiore. Meanwhile Alexander Graham Bell, best known as the inventor of the telephone,

was also investigating hydrofoiling having been inspired by the example of Moy back in 1861. Bell was encouraged down this route of investigation by the manager of his estate and laboratory, Casey Baldwin, a keen boating enthusiast. Baldwin had been studying Forlanini’s work in Italy and together with Bell he developed a hydrofoil prototype which first took to the water in 1908. The inventive duo continued to build new versions of their hydrofoiling concept

As to putting hydrofoils on a sail-powered vessel, that came a little later. Like Forlanini who had taken his knowledge of aerodynamics and applied it to the water, Dr Robert Gilruth came from a professional background of working for the US space agency NASA and its predecessor NACA (the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics). Dr Gilruth was best known as one of the pioneers of the American space programme during the glory days of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space missions. But he was also a keen sailor and, in 1941, built a hydrofoil sailing boat which he successfully sailed on Chesapeake Bay that year. Dr Gilruth was too busy with his day job to investigate too much further, but the concept was proven. After the Second World War, it was again the Americans – and the US Navy in particular – who showed the most interest in picking up on the work of Dr Gilruth and the earlier hydrofoiling pioneers. Gordon Baker, a mathematician, did some work for the US Navy developing foiling systems for powered craft but his bigger interest was making it work for sailing boats. An early version was very temperamental and prone to pitchpoling but when he upscaled to the next version called Monitor, the results were very impressive according to Bob Johnston who went sailing with Baker on the 26-footer in the mid-1950s. “Gordon and I had two great days sailing her,” Johnston reported in the International Hydrofoil Society’s journal. “We had 10 to 20 knot winds which let us take the boat off without assistance. In that breeze Monitor sailed most beautifully. We sailed in all wind directions and the boat handled each direction. We could tack, gybe, and reach. “As I remember the boat pointed higher than I was used to on conventional sailboats. The control system functioned as planned in all these conditions letting us RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

handle the lake waves, the wakes of other boats, and inland lake gusts. I had sailed Baker's other V-foil boats in which we could not gybe without having to take off again and had pitchpoled. "The Monitor design had corrected both of these situations. The after foil was basically controlled by the load on the aft stay. On a reach the after foil angle would go negative to prevent pitching.” When you read such an account of stable and predictable performance, it makes you wonder what we’ve been up to for the sixty years since. Modern foiling seems like a precarious venture, not one suited to leaving the helm for even a moment.

The prospect of stable hydrofoiling for long distance cruising still seems a way off. However, one sailor who was perhaps taken this concept further than anyone is Dave Keiper who designed and built Williwaw, an ocean-going hydrofoiling 32-footer which he cruised around the Pacific in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Jim Wrenn writes of the time he was fortunate enough to go sailing on board Williwaw. “I was lucky enough in life to have sailed with Dave Keiper in the summer of 1971 on the most incredible boat I have ever sailed on. We were anchored in the middle of Hanalei Bay on the island of Kauai when Dave came in and dropped anchor.

“We swam over to have a visit. Of course Dave (most gracious) had to show off the boat. We put out to sea in about a 15 knot trade wind on a beam reach. The boat started heeling like a monohull, and then the foils got a bite and the boat came up out of the water and accelerated like a car...what a rush! The boat was so fast and stable Dave could walk away from the tiller and she would run like she was on rails. This was truly one of the most memorable days of my sailing life of 35 years.” There is some footage of Williwaw flying along above the water, and it’s well worth a look on YouTube. Also in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but on the other side of the pond in Britain, James Grogono invented what is believed to be the first hydrofoil conversion of a standard catamaran when he bought a Tornado and fitted a foil package to it. Initially Icarus -as she was named - was a bit of a flop but, undeterred, Grogono persisted and achieved a speed of 21.5 knots at the first Weymouth Speed Week in 1972. Over time, with more developments and experience, Grogono raised Icarus’ top speed to 28.4 knots. However, hydrofoilers were still customised one-offs. No-one had seen a way of bringing foiling to the mass market. The first attempt at this was perhaps Greg Ketterman’s TriFoiler which he developed in the 1980s and which went into production in the 1990s as the Hobie TriFoiler. RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

A twin-sail trimaran with a mainsail on each outrigger, it was said to be capable of speeds up to 35 knots. It makes you wonder why the idea never took off as well as the TriFoiler itself. Perhaps it was just too far ahead of its time. In recent decades the Americans have shown less interest in pushing ahead on foiling technology and the centre of influence has moved to Europe. In 2009, the foiling trimaran L’Hydroptère broke the speed sailing record with a speed of 52.86 knots. Three years later Australian-born resident of Weymouth, Paul Larsen, was the first to break the 60 knot barrier aboard Vestas Sailrocket 2, setting a record of 65.45 knots, a new benchmark that could take some time to beat. While L’Hydroptere was designed as a pure hydrofoiler, Vestas Sailrocket 2 uses a combination of skimming on the main float and hydrofoiling on the outrigger, although the foil is as much to provide downforce as it is to provide lift. The foil is self-levelling, designed to switch between lift and downforce as the boat speed increases. The faster the boat goes, the more downforce is generated by the foil. Larsen sees downforce as the next big thing in foiling. At this year’s America’s Cup

2020 What nearly all of the current crop of foilers demand at the moment, however, is significant amounts of skill, fitness, time, practice and money. Crash helmets are becoming the norm, as being thrown round the handlebars is all part of the foiling experience right now. The next goal is to develop a more user-friendly form of foiling that doesn’t require such heavy doses of skill, courage and body protection. Designer and builder of the Mach 2 Moth, Andrew MacDougall has designed a more user-friendly version called the Waszp which goes some of the way to addressing these problems. But the Whisper two-person catamaran designed by Ron Price

in Bermuda, the AC50 foiling catamarans will be using their leeward foils for lift and their windward foils to generate downforce, creating the possibilities for enormous amounts or righting moment. “Normally on a beam reach you reach the limit of your righting moment and you have to flatten off the sails, twist them off, reef them, do anything you can to get rid of the power,” says Larsen, who now races a foiling A-Class cat for fun. “But if you can

is perhaps an easier way into the world of foiling for the moderately competent sailor. Price has also collaborated with major brands in the industry to bring us the F101, a singlehander that takes much of its inspiration from the Moth. You could describe the F101 as a monohull with large outriggers, or a trimaran with small floats. Either way, it's aimed squarely at the average weekend sailor. We don’t yet have the ‘Laser’ of hydrofoiling, but perhaps it’s not too far away. Design innovator Alan Hillman is part of the team behind the F101. You can catch Alan along with Mike Lennon (2016 European Moth Champion) on the Suzuki Main Stage for the ‘Foiling into the Future’ talk (2:30 Saturday and Sunday).

generate downforce you can harness that power. And you want to start going upwind at 45 knots? These kind of speeds might be possible once we start using foils to pull the windward hull into the water.” It’s clear that the rise of hydrofoiling in so many forms today is a direct result of seeing the AC72s foiling at the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco. We’re even seeing the foiling effect spread across to the keelboat world, with hydrofoils powering the latest generation of IMOCA 60s to new speeds around the planet in the recent Vendée Globe. Mark Turner, CEO of the Volvo Ocean Race, has indicated that the choice of boat for the 2020 edition will be either a multihull or a foiling keelboat. But the boats that have been foiling consistently and successfully for more than a decade are the International Moth, ever since Australian Rohan Veal, sailing a foiling Moth, dominated World Championships in the mid-2000s. The rest of the Moth world soon followed suit and the popularity of the class has soared. For an 11ft boat weighing little more than 30kg, the Moth certainly punches above its weight, capable of speeds just over 30 knots. If anything it was the little Moths that influenced the mighty AC72s to adopt foils, which in turn has led to the trickledown of technology we see today, the foiling GC32s, the Phantoms, the Nacra 20 Carbons, the A-Class cats and the revamped Olympic catamaran, the Nacra 17, which has been converted to a full-foiler for Tokyo 2020.

ONE MAN AND HIS LASER Everyone knows the Laser is a hugely versatile and fun dinghy but it's not the sort of boat you'd think of sailing around Ireland. That is, unless you happen to be Gary 'Ted' Sargent

W

hen Gary ‘Ted’ Sargent earned a sabbatical from work, he knew it was his chance to not just travel, but to fulfil a long-held ambition to embark on a sailing adventure. Inspired as a boy by epic voyages like the Whitbread Round the World Race (now the Volvo Ocean Race), Ted, aged 42, considered his options, evaluated the cost and then joked to his wife one evening that he could sail around Ireland instead…in a dinghy. Ted has previously sailed around Ireland in a yacht and enjoys a variety of dinghy

and keelboat sailing at Howth Yacht Club and Clontarf Boat Club in Dublin. As the idea refused to go away, Ted asked a physio friend whether it would be physically possible. Receiving positive feedback, he started making his dream a reality, after embarking on months of fitness training and meticulous planning. One Wild Ride was launched, a charity-fundraising, clockwise circumnavigation of Ireland in a Laser. With a volunteer support crew of nearly 40 people, Ted set off from Schull, County Cork, in May 2016, returning back there 42 days and 1,750km later. It had

taken 36 point-to-point sailing days and encompassed the Wild Atlantic Way to Derry, the rugged coastline of the north and the long sandy beaches of the east coast.

Safe Sailing "I can remember the first day very clearly," says Ted. "We were off the west coast of Kerry, with huge Atlantic rollers and a big blue ocean, and I was in this little boat thinking, 'what am I doing?'" Sailing had to be abandoned during the first week when the support RIB broke down and needed to be towed ashore by

a lifeboat. With the breeze hitting the top of a Force 4 and Ted on a full Laser rig, with 21 miles of exposed County Clare cliffs to the next port of call, it served to highlight early on a good risk assessments had been a priority when planning the challenge. Staying on schedule to achieve his goal in the time available would subsequently push him up to and beyond his limits both mentally and physically. The following day a small weather window ahead of more bad weather allowed him to complete the leg in five hours. this was without a support boat but

with shore crew watching his progress from the cliffs. "We needed to keep on track, with the weather on the west coast, you take your chances while you can, and I knew that by not sailing that day could have meant a delay of days or even up to a week at the other end."

Highs & Lows Equipment included a marine helmet with built in VHF, tracking technology to update the One Wild Ride website, GPS, GoPro and Garmin cameras. Ted would aim to sail around eight hours a day; the biggest distance sailed in a day was 49nm, the RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

longest day on the water was 13 hours. It was a punishing programme. "Because it’s your challenge you find that you can delve into your reserves of energy and mental resolve and your body will continue to take the pain," Ted added. Elation from seeing dolphins or breath-taking scenery contrasted with the torture of too much or too little breeze. Lack of wind on one day saw Ted parked for over five hours. Sailing the northern coast in fog for six days using GPS and the tide saw frustratingly slow progress. "Every day that ticked by we were losing time, and for every day lost I knew

it was getting tight at the other end. I had plans for a six to seven week trip and my holidays were running out, the roster was running out. There was huge pressure. "Mentally you go to the extremes. Some days there wasn’t enough wind and then suddenly you’d get absolutely battered. It was hugely challenging just keeping things moving along at the speed we needed and every decision had a knock on effect for everyone else, everything was interrelated." Invaluable support came from his wife Elaine and the many friends, volunteers and near strangers who came forward to help,

plus sponsors like SPOT, Garmin, CH Marine and Rooster; the team didn’t pay for any accommodation thanks to the generosity of people along the route, says Ted: "It was just amazing and made such a huge difference."

Broadening Horizons Although the Laser is not renowned for comfort, he has no regrets about choosing it for his challenge. It allowed him to change rig sizes for the conditions or land on a beach, and proved robust. He’s proud of having just four capsizes and his only breakages were a self-bailer and a self-inflicted lost tiller RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

extension, "that boat took a beating and it never let me down!" For Ted, One Wild Ride was about so much more than simply fulfilling a sailing ambition. The publicity generated raised an incredible €33,000 (c.£28,126) for Ireland’s ChildVision charity and its work with blind, visually impaired and disabled children. It also showcased sailing as a sport and Ireland’s coastline heritage. "I was brought up in a family where even the dog had a lifejacket. My grandfather built boats, my dad was a national champion, and when we grew up we knew nothing but racing. "I hope One Wild Ride encourages others to go out and enjoy their boating. We all reach a point in our lives where maybe we want to go a different direction; a trip like this doesn’t make you unbreakable but it does enable you to say: “Maybe I could give it a go”. It reminds me of the Lonely Planet phrase: “All you have to do is decide to go and the hardest part is over.”

RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

TED’S TOP TIPS NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE SEA: I have a newfound respect for it.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK: A proper risk assessment is a must: when the support boat broke down, we all knew what to do.

ELEVATE THE EXPERIENCE: Don’t just think of it as a sailing trip, think of it as a cultural experience. Share your experience and stories.

TAKE SMALL STEPS: It feels daunting - the sea and the wind are powerful - plan properly.

NO WIND: You have to be prepared for things that don’t

70 YEARS OF

Father and son regularly spend time on the water: Chris (crew) and Philip at the Stratos Inlands

Much has changed since the first Flying Fifteen was launched in 1947 but this classic Uffa Fox designed racer still retains genuine appeal 20

ou know how excited we all get over foiling these days? Imagine what life was like before a sailing boat could get on the plane. At the turn of the 20th century the advent of planing was as exciting to small-boat sailors as foiling is to us 21st century sailors today. Planing is still a surprisingly new phenomenon, with the earliest known example being achieved by a proa built in 1898 by Commodore Ralph Munroe.

However, the man who really brought the potential of planing to the attention of the sailing world was none other than Uffa Fox. In 1928 his International 14 design, Avenger, wiped the floor with the compeition. Of 57 race starts that year, Avenger planed to victory in 52 of them, with two second and three third places. Twenty years later, the Cowes-based designer came up with a two-person keelboat that was also capable of planing.


Fox wrote a letter, dated 17 March 1948, to Stewart Morris, the successful International 14 sailor from Itchenor who later that summer would win a gold medal sailing the Swallow keelboat at the Olympic Regatta in Torbay. Fox writes: “At home, in the bath, at Christmas, I designed and developed the ‘Flying Fifteen’ you see before you. She is exactly like Martlet [Morris’s International 14 designed by Uffa Fox, which won the Prince of Wales Cup in 1947, 1948 and 1949], with a

foot added to her fore end to make her 15ft waterline, and then the ends lengthened out to make a total length of 20 feet. Instead of a centreboard there is a 380lb bulb fin, so all the work and struggles with centreboards is eliminated, and at the same time this removes all the physical strain of laying out, though of course the man who sits will still sail faster than one who does not, in a breeze.” The Flying Fifteen caused quite a stir

when the prototype was launched. It was none other than John Westell, who would go on to design the 505, who wrote the review for Yachts and Yachting in July 1948. “Down at Torquay the other day I had a sail - I might almost have said a flight - with Uffa Fox in his latest creation, the prototype ‘Flying Fifteen’. It was terrific. "In the strong wind which had capsized more than half the Firefly fleet that morning, My Dainty Duck really did get up RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

21


The Flying Fifteen class is noted for friendly and competitive fleet racing

and go places. As soon as we left the pier heads she soared smoothly into a plane, and we kept going for a mile or more with the wind just abaft the beam.” So the Flying Fifteen class was born, and this year celebrates its 70th anniversary. Fox recalls the inspiration for the boat in his 1959 book, Sailing Boats, saying it was the suggestion of Jimmy Damant, a Commodore of the Island Sailing Club and an enthusiastic International 14 sailor to 'design a boat like the 14-footer, but at least 18ft long, that will not capsize.' Then you would have a sensible, safe boat, that was fun to sail as well, for the rough and tumble of tidal waters like the Solent.” The long waterline length made the Flying Fifteen well suited to coping with the Solent chop and the steeply raked keel meant that it would easily shake off weed and other potential entanglements, something that can’t be said for the more modern trend of vertical-fin keels. While these days everyone trails the Flying

22

RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

Fifteen with the keel permanently attached, Fox used to detach the keel so that he could put the hull on the top of his car and stow the bulb inside the car. The popularity of this new doublehander soon spread to other parts of the world, and some of the earliest boats were sailing in places as far flung as Zimbabwe, Australia, Jamaica, Iraq, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. In the early years the build tolerances were generous and the construction methods varied widely, ranging from traditional carvel, moulded ply, aluminium, tufnol, to glassfibre. In more recent years the hulls have been built from epoxy foam sandwich with carbon used in high stress areas, which makes for a significantly stiffer structure and long competitive life. Fox remained committed to the class throughout his life, and often raced with HRH Duke of Edinburgh aboard Coweslip, hull No. 192, which was presented to Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth as a

wedding present. As the class became more established around the world, it secured international status and the first world championship took place in 1979, in Perth, Western Australia. Since then the Worlds have taken place every two years, alternating between Northern and Southern hemisphere venues. Winners of the past three World Championships are Graham Vials and Chris Turner, sailing one of Turner’s Mk 10 designs built at his own company, Ovington Boats in Tynemouth. One man who has sailed the Flying Fifteen consistently for the past 49 years is UK class president Bobby Salmond, who first started crewing for his father at the age of 14. “My father didn’t take up sailing until he was in his forties, and he sailed Hornets dinghies first of all. But the Flying Fifteen is a class that the older sailors come to, and who perhaps have been in high performance dinghies but are fed up falling in every weekend. It’s for people who are no longer as agile as they would like to be,

MAKING SAILS THE WAY YOU WANT

e

st. 965 1


Uffa Fox designed the Flying Fifteen with sailors of all ages in mind

but still want the thrill of a planing reach. That was the essence of the Flying Fifteen then, and still is today.” Salmond says that much of the boat above decks has gone through significant developments over the years, but that other parts of the design remain sacred. “The hull remains the same, as do the rudder and keel, and no one is keen to see any change there. It just wouldn’t be a Flying Fifteen. But we’ve seen big changes in deck layouts and construction methods. "There’s a lot more internal buoyancy built into the side tanks compared with the older boats. If you tipped an old Fifteen over it would fill up to the gunwales and that would be the end of your race. "These days if you suffer a knockdown, once you’re upright it self-drains quite nicely and you’re on your way again.” The rig has seen a few changes over the years too. “Off the wind we used to lower the mast with a mast jack, so the mast leaned forwards with less rig tension,

24

RYA SUZUKI DINGHY SHOW 2017

and then we’d wind it back up again for upwind. That was pretty cumbersome, but it worked. Then shroud levers were introduced, although they were later banned because there was quite a risk of the rig falling out of the boat if you didn’t manage to get the levers back on in time. These days all the tension is done on the jib, there’s no forestay any more, and there all sorts of arrangements for altering the rig tension through the jib halyard. You can adjust the shrouds to promote more rack, but only between races. On a windy day, for example, you might rake the mast a bit more than usual.” The modern Fifteen mast is more flexible than previously, says Salmond. “It means you can really blade out the mainsail nicely, which it makes it easier to handle in a breeze. We’re still using aluminium rigs although there’s talk about moving to carbon fibre at some stage." This year’s worlds take place in New Zealand, and the battle for the title is

expected to be a tough one between the Aussies and the Brits, although the Kiwis might get in there too. Salmond says the class has always attracted top talent from other fleets and he’s pleased to see multiple champion and renowned sailmaker Ian Pinnell coming into the class. “Ian’s an ex-Fireball and 505 World Champion, so it’s a great boost to have someone of his calibre coming in. To be World Champion in the Flying Fifteen really means something.” Even though Salmond is getting close to having spent 50 years in the class, he intends to race the Flying Fifteen for a good while longer yet. “It’s down to the people who sail them,” he says. “I’ve made a lot of friends, all over the world. There’s nothing to beat a one-design class where you’ve got the cut and thrust of close racing. I may not be as agile or as flexible as I once was, but I expect I’ll be sailing the Fifteen for at least another ten years.” Visit the Flying Fifteen stand (C2) in the Great Hall.
