Nacra 20FCS: Stable Flight at BA , Feb 20, 2015.
Talking of subjectivity and opinions, on Friday I changed my mind over the Nacra 20 stable flight capabilities. Dead flat a la FP as I saw live at Carnac.
Perfect conditions of course here too, as the training days I filmed at the Eurocat, but an eye opener on how Nacra has not released yet a video showing what I filmed on these clips.
Today Fer van West gave a Clinic with full house at our Club, and later many went out to sail on the 3 local 20s. 30knots GPS registered today with 3 persons onboard!

More info on Monday.
