Re: AC72 - On Foils

What's interesting to me about these large racing multis is that they are reaching speeds that compete with and surpass most motor vessels. This is especially true when the sea states are up enough that smaller, faster motor vessels have to slow way down to stay stable.

It's crazy to think that the sailboat is becoming the fastest all-round means of sea travel.
