The C was riding the waves superbly when Carrington flung the wheel around. The C spun about its axis in a pair of neatly executed degree turns, sending plumes of water into the air, before proceeding downstream. Just two water jets. The bows dived, and the C lurched to a halt. Twin impellers suck in water via a coarse grille in the front and spit it out at the back, creating thrust. I love taking her up shallow creeks.

They are designed to compete in long-distance events, such as the Vendee Globe, the nonstop single-handed round-the-world race. In between building yachts for clients, Carrington races them. But after 20 years of building and crewing for clients, Carrington felt it was time to acquire a boat of his own.
