Exploring the science behind hydrofoils! The best text we have found that explains how foils (and wings) generate lift comes from Chapter 7 in Doug McLean’s “Understanding Aerodynamics – Arguing from the real physics.” Dr. McLean received a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering from Princeton and worked as a designer at Boeing for 36 years!
