Aparently the nationals are in Portland harbour this week. A mate saw
them on Tuesday and said they were just wonderful, with the boats
lifting on the foils in around 8 knots of breeze. A mixed fleet, but on
the day he was there, the foiled boats took places 1 to 4.

There's some v brief discussion on the comparative performance of foil v=20
non-foil boats in the Veal article on the YA website.
