What an interesting design. 

It seems to be a very specialized design intended for setting a speed record, looks like it's mainly meant to sail on starboard tack (edit:  I was correct in my assumption, see HERE), either reaching or close hauled.  If it were meant for all points of sail it would probably be a trimaran design for stability on either tack.  See below:


If you scroll forward to about 6:55 you'll see the trifoiler overhaul an old Hobie 16.  When I saw this video it was being screened at a meeting of our local Hobie fleet.  Everyone in the room booed when the trifoiler rolled over the H16.

Yup, it rides on foils at speed, and the weird geometry is so that the main body of the vessel points into the apparent wind, rather than in the direction of travel, thus cutting down wind resistance.

 
well, why didn't I think of that. Makes such obvious sense when you read it. That's why I thought it was drifting to leeward.

blimey.  Hope he didn't have any fillings cos he must have lost them on that reach. Far out.
What an interesting design. That sail wasn't all that huge and the thing seemed to be sitting on three surfboards... where was the centerboard to stop it drifting leeward— or was it drifting leeward the whole time anyway?

Okay, I did one more edit. I adjusted the exposure a bit because it looked a little dark, and quieted the leash slapping on the camera a bit. 

It may not be worth watching a second time if you've already seen it, but I won't stop you if you choose to watch it again.

Still available in 720p and 1080p if you have the capability.

I know, but I'm still trying to get my Westy, so I'm holding off getting other toys. It's hard being me with my first world problems.

And thanks to everyone else too, for indulging me. It's pretty fun out there and it's nice to share it. 

I like big wind, but that day was a bit more hectic than normal. I checked the graph from that location after I got home and the average wind speed while I was there was 38 mph, gusting to near 50.  That's pretty much a handful.

You're welcome. Thanks for watching. Hopefully you'll get a camera of your own soon. I'm sure your videos will be less bumpy. And awesome.

I hope you got to see it fairly big. I just watched it on my tv at 1080p and it made my heart race.

Really?  I slowed it down because in real time it's hard to see some things and some people were having problems viewing it without getting dizzy. I like real time too though. You get a better sense of the urgency and flow. 

And  thanks. It made me tired all over again just watching it.

I like BOTH. Because that music really made it something artistic.....and then the real-time was like being there.

Some of the same footage shown in real time. Best viewed in HD and big. 

Try to ignore the clicking of the camera leash slapping against it's case. 
   

I really like real time better, thanks.
