  1. Another beautiful sleek design by Kogakuin, awesome.
    The catamarans all seem to be converging on the smaller is better concept of Nuna9.
    The monohulls have more variety, partly influenced by the cell type, but there are different ideas on where to put the cockpit.
    I couldn’t follow the explanations of Kogakuin on the technical novelties “under the hood”, but I am looking forward to find out what less visible innovations every team has developed.
