You'll have to ask Murph. He's the sailor.

That is wicked!
Similar to what Hobie Cat did with thier Hobie TriFoiler

The Sailrocket looks blazingly faster but obviously not meant for a consumer market like the Trifoiler prototype was.

I'll take one of each, please!

The Trifoiler looks like something a normal sailor could operate under normal conditions..

The Sailrocket was optimized for wind from one direction specifically to set the sail speed record. I believe they hit over 100 kph (sailrocket did a respectable 80 kph).

I'd pay good money to ride the sailrocket as a passenger though.

Hmm... Been pondering this one for a few days and I don't think there is room for bikinis on that boat. The bikini girls will have to ride buck neked.
