america cup class ac45 is a lot faster than a kite, so is the Olympic class tornado. And there are plenty of one of a kind boats much faster than kites like l'hydroptere, idec, orange 2, the big cats and tris.Johnny Rotten wrote:Looks like we're already as fast.
That is Johnny Heineken out with the AC-45s in that pic. SF Bay is the training ground for both.borist wrote:I'd have to ask Bryan what the deal was as I was not there. I guess they were training before races. I doubt they would let him kite that close during the event.
yes I enjoy watching AC series and do not really care which one is faster. what amazes me is the performance of the current kite racing gear. for rather small investment we can go really fast.
i'm glad AC went to cats though. always watched AC races, but now they have made it as thrilling to watch as any fast paced sport out there. finals in SF will be awesome
