... Not sure if I'll be a regular crew on this boat, given my advanced age and declining health, but it was definitely a fun experience.
That seems like great fun. Not a boat for old guys like me but even so for a while it should be fantastic. There are many similar boats racing in Switzerland on the lakes.

The tendency for those boats is going on foils now. Look at the Mirabaud: 5K wind, 12K speed
