Back when there were fin keels and spade rud­ders in the Amer­ica’s Cup, crews were plenty clever about clear­ing weed from foils — kelp sticks, flossers, heck, maybe even a guy hang­ing over the top­sides from a hal­yard. But, hey now, that’s noth­ing com­pared with what these foil­ing cat guys will do in their quest for speed. Dis­patch­ing a grinder for a high-speed clear takes some gump­tion, but the Doc­tor approves — that’s 10 points for style. — Dr. Crash
