The wind finally showed up on the final day of the foiling GC32 Austria Cup, with Chris Draper driving Luna Rossa to an undefeated finale, and 10 wins out of 13 races on the week. We’ll have more on this extremely exciting class for you soon; in the meantime, check out the full day’s racing from Sunday above with speeds over 30 knots, and hit up Youtube for the daily highlights and dozens of interviews.  The archived races from earlier in the week are on the Livestream channel here.

GC32 Austria Cup

We don’t often get to see things in sailing that have never been done before, so it’s a special sight to see the first foiling cat fleet race in the history of the world.  The GC32 Austria Cup held 6 races in 6-10 knots of breeze yesterday on Lake Traunsee, with both Tom Slingsby (Team AEZ) and Chris Draper (Luna Rossa) unsurprisingly kicking plenty of ass.  This one’s from Sander Van Der Borch and you can check out dozens more photos here in the gallery here; the day’s highlight reel is here, and be sure to tune in to the top of SA’s Front Page for the full live show hosted by our own Mr. Clean starting at 1100 CET/1000 GMT/0500 EDT today.

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.
