Americas Cup

Anyone else follow this ?

These 12 meter catamarans, don't sail, they fly.

Check out the videos. Both hulls leave the water and they fly on long underwater foils. These are the first boats that can actually go faster than the wind speed. They have been tracked at over 50mph. Awesome crafts.

    Used to. Catamarans ruined it for me.
    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    The America's cup should have stayed with monohulls. The cats could have started their own or remained under the Louis Vuitton cup race as the highlight.
    Ahh!! The sailor's life for me.
