foiling in love
Since the end of the America’s Cup, have you experienced any of the following symptoms?
1) Pain when you see slow sailboat racing?
2) Inability to sleep without youtube videos of AC45 crashes going in the background?
3) Compulsive watching of any foiling boat videos no matter how short, terrible, or foreign?
4) Obsessive research about J-foils, L-foils, T-foils, Elevators, and all sorts of other shit that has no bearing on your personal sailing?
If so, you need to take two Great Cups and call us in the morning.
That’s because we will be broadcasting live from the first ever non America’s Cup foiling multihull regatta this week in picturesque Lake Traunsee, Austria, where racing teams from all over the world will be test sailing and then racing the first few GC-32 foilers against each other as well as one of the older-foiled designs. Luna Rossa’s been training for the better part of a week with some seriously cool results – the first foiling gybe ever – and we certainly expect them to kick some ass, but with AC folks like Slingsby, Langford, Minoprio and more all checking in, it could be anyone’s game.
Our own Mr. Clean will be leading the commentary team for four hours each day of live action racing. Tune in right here, but only if you like excitement, spray, beautiful alpine backgrounds, and top America’s Cup teams. Miss it and you miss one of the most exciting developments in the sport.
