America's Cup - the Foil-Cant-System is ready

The one-design Foil Cant System (FCS) of the AC75 America's Cup monohulls, developped by the Defender 'Team NZL' and the Challenger of Record 'Prada', is now done and tested and the units are on the way to teams. All AC75 yachts for the 2021 America’s Cup will be using this one-design FCS. The project was more complicated as expected and delays occurred in the 2019 program as the new AC75 monohulls will not be ready to race this year as originally planned.
