l'Hydroptère DCNS in San Francisco (video)



Published on Sep 30, 2012 by LHYDROPTERE
l'Hydroptère DCNS arrived in San Francisco Bay a month ago, when the America's World Series regattas resumed between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. During several weeks, the flying sailors shared the technology of their "flying carpet" with the American public and their training sessions with guests on board. A few hours before the start of the next ACWS regattas and of the Fleet Week, here is a flashback of a very intense month on l'Hydroptère DCNS.
