UFO dinghy creator Dave Clark puts the boat through her paces while training for the little foiler’s first run at the Charleston Fort 2 Battery Race this Saturday. Clark will be on site starting today – if you want a test drive on a UFO on her short Southern road trip, give them a shout pronto. If you just want to race against ’em with your quick ride, register for the race.
But if you just want to see the UFO in her first-ever live appearance, you’ll either need to show up at James Island Yacht Club from Friday on, or just watch Sailing Anarchy’s Facebook page. This Saturday, Mr. Clean will be returning to his social media desk – for one day only – to commentate on the event he helped to launch with foiling firecracker Tim Fitzgerald – who is now training to learn to fly jets for the US Air Force. Foiling just wasn’t fast enough?
With a race record that’s something like 6 minutes long, this is the fastest sailing race in the world. Don’t blink.
