    on a catamaran.

    google '126 mph land sailing record' and watch that thing, a wing masted land sailor...doing 126 mph, look at the yaw and vibration...maybe you will also see the wing masted catamarans (pitchpoling, heh)(yikes, a yacht crash!) in the america's cup at the you tube site also.

    catamaran, four foils in the water, one or two above..and then there's the foil supported sailing record holder at one point doing 52 mph and doing an end over flip into the water.

    then look for moths 'Moth wing masts and hydrofoils' utube...but no kerosene or jet fuel.

    one of my sailing pals quit because he was going to Santa Ynez and the back country with his spiffy glider.

    No  engine noise either....owwwwch!

    This machine kills Fascists.
