new concept for Australian America's cup yacht

Thought I would propose a yacht concept for the next America's cup contest. As much as I really enjoy the current cat concepts it would be nice to see the advanced technology of wing sails and the ability to foil developed on a mono hull like the old Americas cup rules. You could shorten the mast and develop a different foot print for the forward sails. You could then develop out riggers like the Oshunpro concept to create better stability without the need for heavy keels and the platform to develop foiling. maybe the Australians can design such a yacht get a sportswear company like Nike who wants to get into yachting gear and Autodesk who is at the forefront of new technology and has the programs that could create such a craft. Anyway it is always nice to create something that does not exist............YET
