L I F T O F F -- U S A Wins
The boat's twin knifelike bows slice through the small chop, sending torrents of spray through the mesh trampoline "decks" toward the crew. Then, much like water reaching its boiling point, the boat's ultra high-tech hyrdofoils - mounted on the outboard ends of its daggerboards and rudders - suddenly raise the boat of the water. With the drag of seawater on the hulls reduced dramatically, the boat's speed surges in the high-30-knot range. Not surprisingly, sailors call this transition "liftoff."
