The best sailors race in the fastest boats. These AC45 catamarans are different.
They are faster, lighter and they fly on the sea---the boat's foils are out of the water, so things get very fast very quickly. There's very little of the CAT in the water. It's about aerodynamics.It's about control systems. It's about hydraulic systems. It's not Brain Surgery, it's Rocket Science---reminds me of Formula 1. In fact, Red Bull had one of their open-wheel cars next to their bar concession on full display-Zoom.
