No sooner had the America’s Cup ended last summer in San Francisco, friends and clients starting asking me this question. How soon are we going to fly? The spectacular sight of those 72-foot beasts cracking off slightly and jumping up on foils, left most spectators gasping at this new breed of cat. The idea of flying over the waves, supported by 2 or 3 surfboard size hydrofoils is downright cool! 40 knots speeds with burst close to 50 are getting seriously fast.
