They raced the local ferry that runs from the island in the distance, they worked out with time over distance the lead guys averaged 28+ knots for the course, it was blowing about 12-15 knots in a big puff. Two of the kite foilers beat the ferry, and the ferry was hooking along, the fastest I have ever seen them do the run from the island! Ferry captain was on the radio at the end and was pretty keen to do it again for sure.
