New UK Foiler, 'Whisper': Easy Flyer II

Video sent by CJ. Following the steps first developed in cats by Michele Petrucci, some UK sailors & designers took the Stunt.9 applied Moth concept to a bigger double handed flying cat.

This kind of solution (double wand Moth system) is clearly targeted to easy of use and stability in mind. They do not and can´t , at least at this stage, compete in a course race against the FP or F20 for ie,  and this foil concept is way more complex (mechanics) than the 'TNZ' setup.  

But this 'Whisper' UK foiler and the Sunt.9 have both achieved the stability goal and 'automatic' foiling.
More details on the project with a Q&A with designer next weeks.
