I am digging the America’s Cup races so far. But one thing that perplexes me is how far out of the water these catamarans ride. (That, and their astonishing speed.)
At one point in one of today’s races, the Team NZ boat made a turn (tack? sorry, I’m not up on the nautical terms) and to me, it looked like there was not a lot holding it on the sea! Crikey! Talk about bleeding edge technology.
PS: And how do they steer them?
