“Hey C-FLY, thanks for the great trip…”“….I was keen to find out what you guys were doing and the opportunity to come aboard and support your project as well, was ideal for me…”“.. I guess I hadn’t really appreciated what you’ve achieved and the incredible foiling breakthrough you’ve made…”“…The thing that surprised me was the way C-FLY just takes off and sails so fast without any fuss or foil adjustment. The boat just gets straight in the groove and is incredibly stable. If she’s that good on the flat, she must be awesome in waves…..““She’s one hell of a ride! Let me know when you’re planning to sail offshore?”
