In the end, it was all about the finish. After three days of racing neck and neck with the Botin 65 Caro, the last few hours saw us come from behind to cross just 39 seconds ahead of them. Boatspeed in the low 20’s, an A2 far beyond its design wind range or angle with a widening hole from a previous repair, and a diminishing amount of track to run all made for an exhilarating ride that none of us will forget.

Infiniti Yachts

The team at Infiniti Yachts successfully fitted the first DSS into a superyacht, the Baltic 142 Canova.

Here she is on sea trials and demonstrating the increased comfort onboard.

The DSS, a transverse, 29ft 6in (9m) long, sliding foil is built discreetly into the yacht just below the waterline.

The foil is dynamic so as the speed increases the heel angle of the yacht reduces, as demonstrated in this short film.
