    Of course they do - they're boats.

    Coverage of Sail GP was so poor I can't even locate the results

    Sounds like some engineering teams badly misunderestimated the effects of ocean on stressed composites.

    New concepts. New challenges. Steps into the unknown. Try it and see.

    They sink they collide with other boats ,rocks, and other floating or submerged objects.
    IIRC there was an incident involving a fish boat ,nets and a passing submarine.

    Like many beautiful things - they are dangerous.

    True submarines are beautiful surface Boats not so much they would be prettier if they followed the ice berg percentages :)

    Now that's an idea: a submarine sailboat.

    In the sense that shitting on your own leg is an idea?

    Actually that's quite illustrative as a counterexample. The reason sailboats work is that they operate at the interface between two different fluids.

    Oh, I'll still allow sails and masts to be above the waterline. But the "boat" part should be hanging down beneath the waves. Slower than a foiling cat, sure, but much smoother ride.

    It's how the Egyptians moved large stones and obelisks, you know. Hanging them underwater from tandem ships.

    Interesting, but it sort of spoils the fun of howling wind and frothing water foaming into the cockpit as you quietly crap your drawers.

    That ship has no keel, does it?

    After watching that I feel nearly as seasick as the crew looked.
