That face when you hear your foil gurgling...

Kids from the developmental program from Clearwater foiling with North Beach in St. Pete. Just so you know who's going to be kicking your butt racing in 10 years. ROFL

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

I thought someone put a foil on a whale at first glance.

There is no off season.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Boats ought to be beautiful like a 12 m or badass like the foiling AC cats. These things just look weird and ugly. Scratch one-s head
But people prolly say the same thing about me. Crazy

I've grown to like them. I think they look much better in motion than a still pic. But, I gotta admit, I'm always reminded of this when I see a pic

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Meanwhile, Nicolas Goyard is pushing the envelope of windfoil speed

36.45knt in V 2s
34.22 on 10s
32.93 on 1km

can you imagine sailing from Van Pugh to Aqualand at almost 38 mph? My V 2s is maybe, maybe 21 mph.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Your max speed is higher than 21 either that or I am going 10.

Edit 3 hours later
Dude...your silence is deafening. Am I really that slow?

I max the Tillo big wing just above 21 - the wing has a lot of lift and I really haven't gone out fully set up for that. However the avg speed is pretty high, 17-19. I'm even doing 14-15 hard upwind. I haven't GPS'ed the small wing or the AFS small wing. Lisa has borrowed my GPS phone so I won't be able to do any runs this weekend.

Goyard's speeds are amazing. IMHO, it's a lot harder than breaking 50 knots at Luderitz which is well hard enough.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

I was just stalking N. Goyard's FB and saw this drone video posted back in October that I missed. From Engadinwind. btw, he says the speeds are records and feels like he has more in the tank. Shok

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Conditions for Nico Goyard's foil record run: "[Winds] were between 20 and 30 knt, standard stuff for Nico: float prototype in 91, IRIS R with small wing and small stab. Ga slalom 5.6" according to Eric of Glissattitude.

Goyard posted on FB: Yes new record in vmax, on the km and on the mile Wink I'm waiting to see if I don't do better 😋
