Photo: Artemis in "three legged mode", the preferred way for maximum speed, with the leeward wing and both rudders with their smaller wings in the water
Photo: Luna Rossa on "three legs", the preferred mode for maximum speed of up to 40 kn (75 km/h), with the leeward wing and both rudders with their smaller wings in the water. Speed with the hull in the water is 20 kn and acceleration back to 40 kn is reached within 10 seconds!
Photo: To "fly" the jibes (turn away from the wind) is literally the pivotal point in the race as dipping the hull int the water slows the boat down from almost 40 kn (75 km/h)  to half the speed.
