Comments by Carl:
"Video features Kiwis Micha Wilkinson and Liv Mackay on was their first day sailing the new Nacra 17 being tested in Netherlands.
The UK team is also over there testing , they were out there in 25 knots today and comments are the boat is "was ballistically fast foiling upwind and downwind" this from a crew also used to sail an FP.

Micha and Liv were sailing in 6 to 14 knots, with it foiling downwind in about 7 to 8 knots..."
