07/03/2006: March Update
January and February have passed quickly as we have continued work on the wing. There have been a number of minor design changes that have made progress slower than we would have liked, however completion is now in sight.
We have recently realized that it is difficult to get the size of the craft and our project across. In order to help convey this we have included a picture showing Monofoil standing next to a London Bus. It is slightly daunting to look at!
Their has been little or no news from the competition. Macquarie Innovation were due to return to the water within a month or two of their wing failure, but have not yet been seen. Neither Finian Maynard or Bjorn Dunkerbeck have had any suitable opportunities. There were excellent wind conditions at the French Trench in January, but no one available to take advantage of them. The Trench suffered some minor damage, but it is reported that it will be up and running any day now. Sailrocket, Windjet and the Paravane Speedsailer have all had a slow winter.
