K2 Test – Sep 13Return to News
KAIView graph showing boat speed in knots (red) and total kite line tension in kgf (black). The gaps with no tension readings show towing between locations.
Another great test today. T-foil position adjustment was successful, and boat performance was excellent with 18 sqm kite. We initially tried to kite off Alameda Point, but the wind there was too low to foil reliably, so we packed up the kite and towed to Treasure Island, where the wind was better, and we hit a top speed of 28 knots near the San Francisco waterfront.
