The ultimate freesail System was unveiled earlier this year ar the French speed trials at Port.St Louis, but top sailor, designer, amateur photographer and WINDSURF contributor, Jeff Maggnan Couldn’t find out the kite-flying fellow’s name “He was bouncing all over the place, especially when a gust hit!” exclaimed the rookie reporter. “I could just about catch up with him and then, suddenly He’d go— Ahhhhh! — but he did literally fly across the water.” Riding two regular water skis, the unknow sailor reached sustained bursts of 15 knots in an 8-knot breeze. Such speeds were possible because of the force created by the angular velocity of the oscillating kite. Write WIND SURF if you don’t think this idea looks like Fun.
