Re: But really, is it sailing, or?

I believe Hydroptère lost their prime sponsor - they were in California waiting for a window to sail to Hawaii - and is now for sale. No updates on their website (Hydroptère.com) since August. Anyone want to go waterskiing wtih ten friends?

On the other hand, it really is sailing. They have a complete crew, and can reef, tack, gybe and sail upwind as well as down. The boat has been out in hefty conditions and can handle reasonable ocean waves. (Let's not purposely go out into a Hurricane, eh?) AND she's fast.
