Epic test today from Treasure Island to Crissy Field and back. We removed the motor from the boat after the morning’s test and made it out on the water in time for an extended test with the KB-KW-40C kite. We exceeded 30 knots several times, each time in well under 15 knots of wind. Final run back to Treasure Island included a peak of 32 knots in about 10 knots of true wind. Many other boats, including the Artemis America’s Cup team, were out on the bay today. Peter flew the kite for part of this test. Thanks to Erin for taking photos.
