how foils on a Moth sailboat work [video]

this is a pretty sweet video for the Zhik Nautica 2012 Moth Worlds where Andrew McDougall explains how the foils on a Moth sailboat work.  these light little boats just amaze me – I love seeing the videos of a Moth sailor hanging off the side to “run” on the water as the sailboat is zipping across the water up on the foils.
