It's been one year...

According to design director Mike Drummond, this week marks the one year anniversary of d-day - decision day - on whether to build the wing sail for USA, or not.

With the benefit of hindsight, it seems an obvious decision, but at the time it was anything but.

Seven months after the go-ahead to build it was given, the wing was rolled out of the shed, attached to the boat and taken for its first test sail on what we dubbed 'An amazing 24 hours'.
