We just finished practicing the Manoeuvrability Trial. The manoeuvres we need to perform are docking with the right and left side of our boat, sailing around a buoy, completing a 360° turn while sailing backwards. The race starts and ends with the boat crew on the dock and we have to perform all these manoeuvres as fast as possible at a max speed of 4 knots. We are happy with the results of this practice run and can not wait for the race!
Before the race we are now hitting the Open Sea waves one last time for a final rehearsal today. Yesterday we sailed a new speed record of over 50 km/h! We are now finetuning the boat to a stable foiling cruise speed with the help of an industry expert. What do you think will be our top speed?
