Very cool story. Thanks for posting. Goes to show that careful observational science can still make big contributions.
Need this for my jacket. Does it come in a spray? Camp Dry only lasts until the first wash, and you can't buy Quarpel anywhere at any price.

IIRC they’ve found that an ordered textured surface has less friction to water than a smooth slick surface and racing sailboats have that type of coating.
I think the 12 meter America had the coating.
