The French have been doing foil equipped mini 650's for a while. They've even combined them with reefable wingsails. The only difference with this one is this one wont meet mini class rules for max beam.

Other than its got dog leg foils like the AC, I can't really see what is news about this one. I mean good on them for having a go and doing some development. Given the profile of the AC, its probably good PR for the Philippe Briand to do this one. No one has noticed all of the other foiling 650's or any other innovative thing they have tried in that class, other than mini geeks that is...
