ANOTHER BIG ‘H’ SIGHTING – As the AC boats take center stage this week there is another hi-tech monster sailing the bay sizing up it’s prey as it speeds across the water at TWICE the speed of the AC 45’s.
This sighting is from Greg of BAMA (Bay Area Multihull Association) and the crew of the Origami:
“After a day of watching the America’s Cup world series Aug 23, 2012 races in San Francisco, the F27 Origami’s crew gets up close with the world’s fastest ocean sailer! About an hour before weighing anchor, we were thinking…
“too bad we didn’t see the Hydroptere tri out here today”. But as they were half way back to Sausalito…be careful what you wish for!”
