Flat out in a sport catamaran
Of course we are all impressed by the supersonic speeds reached by the new flying multihulls, such as the new AC 45s boosted by their foils.
But do we have to sail aboard these overpowered catamarans whose cost is as impressive as their speed, to have fun?
Not necessarily, if we can believe the latest e-mail that Roland Gaebler sent us:
what a buzz to sail at 36.8 knots (68,15 km/h) on a simple sport catamaran (equipped with foils nevertheless). All you have to do is climb aboard – not forgetting your helmet – and sail...
The season is going to be incredible on these little rockets.
Roll on 2016 and the Foiling World Cup...
