The IMOCA are demanding boats. 18 meters with lots of sail's surface, they are intended to be handled by a single man and can navigate around the world in complete autonomy. But sailors always want to go faster. Then the solution is to relieve the drag of the boat in the water. This is why the architects have imagined drifts on the sides to relieve boats under sails.
Today, it is the foils that make their apparitions. Placed on the sides, they allow the boats to lean on and lift the hull. It's pretty impressive to see, for the first time, these boats are flying from wave to wave.
On this image taken during an image bank realized for Safran in view of the Vendée Globe 2016, the skipper Morgan Lagraviere is not pretending, as always.
