Image BAR - This shot is revealing on the height the AC boys are flying. If the Nacra F20 felt too high imagine a ride not on the AC45 but the AC72? The platforms are bigger & different, thus the feeling might not be the same, still flight 'altitude' is one to respect.
While Oracle / Artemis are on the Turbo versions , BAR & Groupama are in the 'pre historic age' first 45 foiling steps. Nevertheless it might interesting to know how the new Aero and beam/case placement mods affects final performance on a matchup between OR/AR AC45 'Turbo' vs the spartan BAR/Groupama version.
