There was lift off today at Martinique Flying Regatta, the Caribbean’s first regatta purely for foiling boats. Conditions on the Baie de Fort de France for day one could not have been better with 18-20 knots and flat water, the palm tree-lined bay protected by the mountainous island. The ‘boats’ sailed three races, while on a separate course the Windfoil and KiteFoil classes raced four.
