Chased Hydroptere downwind for 5 seconds before the firehose off the foils chased me away.
I then followed the ENERGY AC 45 form the StFYC to the Golden Gate Bridge and all I got to show for it is this pic with a $32million 250 GTO Ferrari sit in front of the the club after I got out of the water.
So am I the first to and only to have my board with in 10 meter of three 30+ million dollar race machines in a single dayt?!? :)

You need to paint your board red if you want to park it there :)

I had a clipboard in the formula 1 pits that TOTALLY counts.....;)
Sounds like an awesome day buddy, Some serious company you guys roll with. Would love to make it down that way for one of the races.

According to John Criag the AC45 and the top kiteracers run the course in the same time.
AC45s are faster upwind and the kiters are faster downwind.
He should know he was the StFYC race director from the time we start racing and also ran the North American Championship a few month ago as PRO. His current day job is principal race officer for the 34th America’s Cup.

As far as Hydroptere it a drag racer so once it is going it is gone. If it needs to turn it takes some time.
