Kinetic V vs. Rage - The Race Track...or, "Rage Against The Machine!"

"Kinetic Rage"... I think I just found the name of my next boat!

This short video compares the racing paths of the Wylie 70 "Rage" and the Transpac 52 "Kinetic V" during the 2016 CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race, held May 12-15, 2016. Rage eventually finished first by minutes, after Kinetic V sailed into a windless hole 100 yards from the finish; oh, it was in Canada... 91.44 METERS from the finish!

Thanks to Gary B for the correction...apparently the previous reference to a tiller was incorrect, outdated information.
