    Really fast by lift from the kite and interesting steering in front (canard).

    The small wingsail tri Zephyr is a brainchild from Tony Smith well known for his Trimarans and Catamarans (Telstar, Gemini and more). It has a very clever arangement to trim the profile and the angle of the sail. Therefore there is no need to reef .
