Your Ed got a ride on the 100′ maxi Alfa Romeo today in Long Beach, CA for a Transpac practice. To say the boat was impressive would be quite an understatement. In this shot with the smallest kite up, we were cruising at a steady 18, keel canted and two tons of water ballast. Jesus, what a machine. Full report tomorrow. This great shot from Peter Drasnin – here’s one that shows the whole kite. Funny, it looked big on the boat!
