Where were you when the revolution started?
Julie, weren’t you lamenting a few days ago about how different the AC boats were and how their technology will never trickle down? Looks like it is happening soon than we all thought. Out here in the Bay Area, multihulls have been a presence for quite some time. Our DH Farallones race is sponsored by BAMA. Check them out on the web. I wouldn’t be surprised that there isn’t someone in their garage right now trying to figure how to put foils on their DCat. A couple of years ago I was pulling RC duty on the Second Half Opener when one of the big 40’ cats was finishing while flying a hull. Their bow woman (a real “Betty”). Was astride the flying hull right at its bow – riding it like it was a porpoise. It was a spectacular site and she made the cover of Latitude. The future is now and it is happening on San Francisco Bay.
