…Guess what’s already in the US waiting for an ideal weather window to break the TransPac speed record to Hawaii which stands at 4 days 3/4 by another French trimaran…? The ‘flying’ (foiling) boat that does up to 50-knots at sea and is capable of sailing the 2,250-nautical miles from Long Beach to Honolulu in 3 1/2 days…!!! My friend Jacques Vincent that crewed with my on the 2005 TransPac and a number of mini races in France is on the “Le Hydroptere” team – GO JACQUES !!!
More incredible pics of the ‘flying fish’ here.
Now that’s truly “liquidflight” ________________________________/)
