The wing, which is the supporting foil, is mounted on two spars. The angle of the foil is permanently electronically adjusted so that the boat is horizontally stable, moves smoothly in wakes and leans natural while banking. At the wing, which is formed like an airplane wing in cross section, an overpressure develops at the underside, at the upper side a negative pressure.
