We were a little skeptical at first, but the small hydrofoils are more than capable of carrying the Furia III. Here a screenshot of the MG Energy Portal showing the telemetry data coming real-time from the Furia III in flight. Unfortunately we have to hide the power data to keep the competition in the unknown (of the performance)……
In a couple of days we will publish more pictures!
Last weekend we finally had time to replace all components that propell the furia III in flight. As of today we have new: propellers, gears, shafts, motor, smaller hydrofoils (40%) and a rudder that is 30% thinner than the previous. Every component is designed and improved by the team, it is a complete new generation of hydrofoil gear!

Almost all participants of the Dutch championship Akkrum must know this route by heart by now, and now you can join them. After a full hour of racing we placed a camera for you to see what the team captain of the Furia III saw the last 15 minutes. Sit back and enjoy!
The goal of the race in the video was to sail as many laps as possible during 75 minutes, we managed to do 20 laps with an average spectacular speed of 28 km/hDiscover the route here.

A recap video is still to come but this video shows our performance at the sprint during the Dutch Championship Akkrum. The video was shot at the finish of the sprint game first showing Gerard van der Schaar pushing the Furia III to 45km/h and a few seconds later Mark Scholten in the Furia II sailing at about 29km/h.Check out the route here.
Cheking back the log files we confirmed that we broke our speed record with 1 km/h, our new record stands at 45 km/h!
