New foiling dinghy: The Ifly
The all project came from an idea of Sebastien Col (one of the most successful french sailor)
The Ifly has been designed during summer and Autumn 2014 by what I will call the Ifly design team:
- Sam Manuard (naval designer),
- Dimitri Despierres (Naval engineer, under contract with Oracle team),
- Sebastien col (as manager )
- Hervé Devic (boat builder, manager of Tocatec ) .
In January 2016 the first "Ifly" was launched . With the fine tune of Sebastien Col the" Ifly " shows a very good stable flight .
The original idea was to provide a new flying dinghy to young sailors (the actual choice is: Laser, 420, 29er !!!!!) Then we enlarge the specs to 80 kg .
We are still in development , but we should be ready to deliver the first "Ifly" by the end of September 2016
you can see the "Ifly" on facebook : facebook.com/Ifly.eu/?ref=ts&fref=ts
