What better place for a boat that claims to ‘fly on water’ than the Formula 1 of sailing?
Not as the main star, of course, but as an equally-spectacular companion. This year’s edition of SailGP marked a historic premiere – the famous Candela C-7 became the first electric foiling chase boat in the competition.
The France SailGP team made history this weekend in San Francisco at the United States Sail Grand Prix. For the first time ever, its high-speed sailing catamaran was accompanied by an electric hydrofoil craft, used for the team’s VIP guests and media so that they could get a first-class view of the race.
