Exhilarating stuff! These AC72 catamarans are literally rocket ships floating on foils...flying along at speeds…

Stop. Rewind 5 years. 2009.
That is the last time the Double Cape Race was sailed, with nine yachts lining up on the start/finish line at Barkers. It was tough. No wind at the start, a big swell at short period, and a westerly moving south and then south east and building to 35 knots. That was a race organised by RCYC on behalf of SAS. It was a dying breed, because it was tough, and we have too much weather information readily available now to avoid having to be tough.
