Batwings have been on the fringes of skiing and skating with the occasional appearance in watersports over the past 20 years, but have never really broken through. The efficiency of the today’s foil boards has made batwings viable again, and we got this shot straight from today’s prototype testing of the new Duotone batwing in front of James Island Yacht Club on the eve of the Charleston Fort2Battery Race.

We will have live coverage of the 6-mile run-what-you-brung sprint tomorrow at 3 PM ET on SA’s Facebook Page thanks to guest host Mr. Clean on the SA Facebook Page here: www.facebook.com/sailinganarchy
