Flying Phantom Series
In 2017, the world-renowned Extreme Sailing Series™ becomes the place to fly as it boosts its foiling portfolio with the liveliest small catamaran out there, the Flying Phantom.
The partnership with Series organisers OC Sport will see the Flying Phantoms take flight at the European Extreme Sailing Series Acts, staged on some of the most iconic patches of water in the world. With a fleet of 12-15 boats zipping around in some rather tight spaces, the racing promises to live up to the high-octane action that the Series has consistently delivered over the past decade.
Weighing just 165kgs, the speedy one design cats were co-designed by Dr Martin Fisher, the foil expert who designed the GC32s, and Groupama sailing team. Once foiling, the rapid little catamarans can reach speeds of around 31 knots.
