SoftBank Team Japan: First Foiling Tack

The first foiling tack by SoftBank Team Japan back on April 19th, 2016. Long regarded as the “Holy Grail” of the America’s Cup, the maneuver has been the last significant barrier preventing America’s Cup teams from hypothetically foiling around an entire racecourse – a feat that if proven could potentially define the outcome of the 2017 America’s Cup.
