Jimmy Spithill & Crew First Hydro Foil Sailing Mission NYC to Bermuda | BLUESMITHS

Ocean Firsts

As you all know, we celebrate ocean pioneering here at Bluesmiths. So it’ll be no surprise that when we got this call, we wanted in.

Our friend and America’s Cup wining professional sailor, Shannon Falcone let us in on a secret mission. He and Oracle Team USA Skipper Jimmy Spithill would be sailing from New York to Bermuda in a DNA F4 – a 46 foot foiling catamaran. This had never been done before. It would represent a true Ocean First.

We didn’t catch a ride on the boat this time but Shannon, Jimmy and the Team Falcon crew did wear Bluesmiths clothing: The Kula Windpro Hoodie, The Kanaha Hydrophobic Shirt and The Spartan Hydrophobic Shorts.

“We went from pushing the boat for performance…into survival mode,”

 “These were the biggest waves I’ve faced in a multi-hull and hopefully don’t ever have to experience again."
