America's Cup final Race - WOW

Sailboat racing?

Yeah, sure, B O R I N G ! ! !

That was then, this is now!!

These new boats are screaming fast, and in the rough water, even the power boats are taking a beating trying to keep up. Seventy two foot catamarans going over fifty miles per hour in whitecaps! They also making amazingly fast turns. This video shows the action, The racing actually starts around 12 minutes in, and I haven't watched the rest of it past the end of the race, but the race only last about thirty minutes or thereabouts.

Does anyone know when they started using foils? Obviously I haven't been watching this in the past, so am pretty much out of date.
