Well done to the Scarlet team
“They won the first race but could not hold on and ended up 3rd in the regatta raced last weekend – good results as they broke the mast the week before and it was a major effort to fix this and still be up for competitive racing –.” Mar 2014

Our pal Jack from Cornwall checks in with some info on the just-launched double-masted foiling Cobalt Cat.

It was with great satisfaction earlier this month that the Team Cobalt Catamaran made its first leap up onto its hydrofoils in 10 knots of Breeze at Calshot Spit on the Solent.  This was the culmination of a 3 year part time build program for our team which we formed to design and build a 20′ hydrofoil bourne catamaran to take on the Round the Isle of Wight Record. An ambitious project to champion the merits of small multihulls and push the limits of the beach-cat platform.

The boat made its public debut at the RYA Dinghy Exhibition in London where myself and Luke Yeates co-founders of Team Cobaltmanned the stand in the Palm Court entrance.
