Louis Vuitton Cup: Spectacular Am-Cam video of Kiwis foiling upwind    
Sat, 24 Aug 2013


Videographer John Navas was in his favorite position on the edge of San Francisco Bay and captured this video of Emirates Team New Zealand foiling upwind on Leg 3 of Race 6 of the Louis Vuitton Cup Final.

This is the first close-up video of a boat foiling upwind during a race, as Emirates Team NZ hit 30kts for a sustained period upwind.

Surprisingly their gain was not that significant in terms of metres gained over the Italians, however the foiling ability does have several tactical advantages which pay a significant dividend later in the race.
