Just before the snow started to stack this winter I had the opportunity to take a 1000 mile sea trial of the new F4 with Shannon Falcone (@racingsf). This trip blew my mind to what the future of offshore sailing has in store and was by far the most intense sailing I have ever done personally. This future craft is a 46 foot carbon performance catamaran built for foiling offshore. Shot on GoPro – I had the pleasure of joining 3 professional sailors along with Shannon, Thomas Loughborough (@tloughboro), Cy Thompson (@cythompson1) and Justin Shaffer (@shafferj) as I am purely a hobbyist.
We left on the heels of the ‘Falcon’ with @Jspithill (Jimmy is the Skipper of Oracle Team USA) sailing from NYC to Bermuda, I highly recommend watching the ‘Flying On Water’ documentary on Outside TV about that trip, presented by Red Bull. It has all the juicy details of the genesis story for the F4. The crew sailed to Bermuda where the 35th America’s Cup is held. LVCS starts this Friday, May 26th! Watch live via the America’s Cup app! Next month the F4 will be sailing around Bermuda during the AC Finals starting on June 17th, go for a ride if you find yourself there! https://www.tourdefoil.com @North_Sails @oracleteamusa @tourdefoil. #sailfasthavefun
