Love the guy just leisurely walking across the deck... then whoa!

I still dread the change from mono- to multihulls.
Lost interest from then on, I just don't care for these multi's.

Damn that is really close :o

If you ever get a chance to sail on one, you'll change your mind! ;)

It looks dramatic, but I'm not sure how close it really was from that perspective. From looking at the foils, it seems like a good bit of time passes before the close boat starts to cross the far boats wake right at the end of the clip.

What I find really interesting is how fast that boat turns. Just pivots on the foil.

That skipper and I would part ways at the dock.

I was also impressed with how quick the boat turned when that action was demanded. I was looking to see if anyone got pitched with what had to be a strong lateral turn.

Looks fake.

Boataholic 09-05-2015 05:36 PM

guy in boat going forward was supposed to yield to boat coming in on right. He should of seen that the angles weren't changing. Oh wait....are all rules off in a race?

cpsdad 09-05-2015 05:37 PM

The guy walking on deck gets thrown from the turn. Sure turns fast.

It's a race! If you have ever raced large sailboats you would understand! Sometime S--- Happens! Just like NASCAR.

Actually, in a sailing race, "Boats on a port tack shall keep clear of boats on starboard tack" (Rule 10), is a rule that typically trumps all the other rules.

In this case, the boat that veered sharply was on a starboard tack (wind coming from the starboard side of the boat), and had the right of way. :thumbsup:

But a rule that trumps the above rule is, "Even if you have right-of-way, it is your duty to avoid a collision, once it becomes apparent that the other boat is not keeping clear" (Rule 14).

That's a crazy amount of lateral force on that one foil. That's some amazing engineering.

Who ever was driving that boat did a hell of a job at turning it.

If you look at the end of the clip, you can see the rudders under the back of each hull. They're red. ;)

That is amazing! Life is so much more exciting on the water.

A boating disaster nearly took place in the Americas Cup. Team USA came within inches of Team New Zealand in an amazing near-miss.

Wasn't that close after looking at that video. Just a little ego and feelings hurt.

Alpod 09-07-2015 07:07 AM

Wow that thing turns on a DIME. If it wasn't for that they definitely would've hit!
