Flying Multihulls Water Speed Record

I think this link was posted somewhere else on the forum, but I am going to post it here as a curiosity for those who like to sail REALLY fast.

Mark Pastick, one of the organizers and main contenders for this record is a good friend of mine. Having seen the windriders up on the foils, I can say first hand this is amazing to watch. Imagine sailing at 50kts and then two people lift the boat onto the beach

This kind of thing just puts a grin on my face...

There was one hydrofoil equipped trimaran that did some world cruising. Willawaw built by David Keiper.

Zach, great article. Nothing like out running the motoryachts, and bypassing the fuel dock
