First miles of Kingfisher
In New Zealand, the first test races of the new AC9F class boat took place yesterday. These vessels will be used by teams participating in the America's Youth Cup. Including – and the Russian team.
The main distinguishing feature of AC9F boats (as well as the very first of them) is that, as we have already reported, all of them will be printed on a 3D printer of the largest New Zealand sailing shipyard Yachting Developments.
The first boat was called Kōtare, translated from the Maori language – “Kingfisher”.
