Yep, wasn't that long ago that America's cup boats began foil tacking...

Another foiler from the Netherlands. He's a bit older, 19, suggesting that this may be commonplace very soon as it won't just be a stunt by lightweight juniors.

Luc is the camera guy. The foiler is Amado Vrieswijk.

Funny comment about Harry Joyner, shown above, on seabreeze:
"Ive raced this guy and he was fast enough in his tacks before he was fully foiling. Looks like i'm gonna lose 200 metres on him per tack now instead of the normal 100.. "

Great news for foilers. Now they will have something to work on after they perfect their foiling jibes.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

So, around 2032? Add this to my list which includes ducks, down and upwind 360s; and anything else that I talk about but rarely try.

"My name is Harry Joyner a young windfoiler from Fremantle, Perth, Western Australia. I have been windsurfing for 3 year and foiling for 2. "
