2021 Kite Proa

Kite Sailing Prototype Nr. 1

Early 2021 I build my first Kite Proa. The design evolved while building this first kite sailboat of mine. It provided me with great learning opurtunieites and allowed me to test the basic question of stearing a boat by moving the kite attachment point. Also I could compare the different hull shapes. Further, I learned much about boatbuilding with plywood, epoxy, and glass fiber. Now I am looking forward to building my second prototype and to do further testing and longer sailing.
