Don't know what a Nacra is... But I guess the moth and kite will be top.

Can't wait to see, great idea!!!

Sorry for the delay everybody and thank you for your patience! We just got back from another shoot and it was a mad dash to get everything up today!

Observations from the race

Kite - Dominated all around the course, truly impressive efficiency. Actually made it really hard to film since he was basically gone at the gun!

M32 - Pointed higher than the Moth and Nacra, about the same boatspeed. Almost as fast as the kite downwind, deeper and faster than the Moth and Nacra.

Moth - Nearly as fast as the M32 upwind, but couldn't quite hold the same angle. Pointed higher than the Nacra, but very similar VMG overall. Faster tacks than the Nacra which is why I think they rounded Mark #1 ahead both races. Downwind, similar angle to the Nacra, but at times a tiny bit slower. Jonny wiped out downwind on Race #2 while holding a 5 second lead over Casey/Page...but I think they would have passed him anyway as they were finding new modes downwind and charging!

Nacra - Lowest angle, but very fast. Keep in mind these guys only had 5 sessions on the boat, so they will likely improve the most very quickly. Downwind they had moments that were blistering fast. Each leg they went faster then before!

Thanks for watching and supporting Waterlust. We love making these kind of videos that bring different athletes together. So much fun!

Cheers

-Patrick + The Waterlust Team

The text next to the kiter should have said higher and faster and cheaper. It's good to know we picked the right sport.
