Some new videos, hydrofoil testing and a kite run
Saturday featured pretty typical Lyttelton conditions, ie 15kts just after lunch slowly building to low 20's by mid afternoon. Ideal for some more hydrofoil testing. The plan was to try and get some footage from another boat and do some two boat testing at the same time. L3 and TheVirtual headed out in around 16kts. Its not that easy saiing the boat as quickly as possible, whilst trying to keep the camera on the other boat, but we did manage to get some footage before they climbed too far to windard! Hydrofoil two boat testing.
The second video is from onboard TheVirtual later the same afternoon. The breeze had built to just over 20kts and with the incoming tide the water was pretty flat. R607 TheVirtual kite run.
