A flying catamaran
The most recent addition to the Spindrift racing stable, the TF35 is a latest generation flying catamaran. A worthy successor to the famous D35 launched in 2004 by the Swiss yard Décision, this 35-foot multihull is equipped with a unique computer-controlled automatic foil system enabling her to take off both upwind and downwind. Designed around her foils, the TF35 is intended to be both accessible and airborne; a compromise made possible through the use of an on-board inertial guidance system. This technology enables the boat’s flight to be controlled electronically.
A whole new era
With this new catamaran equipped with T-shaped appendages (rudders and foils), the circuit is entering a whole new era, which it’s fair to say is more airborne, but it’s also faster and more spectacular since the TF35 is capable of sailing at three times the windspeed.
