    10' Pocket Foiler designed by Hugh Welbourn--
    The types of Pboats wanted to do a flying Diecipiedi for the class of the same name and watching the boats of Hugh Welbourn have decided to ask him a 10 Ft monohull that could sail both in displacement that glide and flying.

    So you can have fun in all wind conditions ... of course, foiling is the novelty for a small monohull (Waszp, Moth and UFO are a separate category)

    A simple boat to be managed by one person, also suitable for children, double choice of rig: single 8 sqm mainsail or mainsail and additional 8 square meters for the more experienced and heavy.

    The boat flies with 6/8 knots of wind (depending on the weight of the helmsman), easy to launch and wing with a slide with an Open Bic type trolley, the easiest way to approach the foilers in our opinion. It is 3.04 meters long, 1.45 meters wide, weighs 48 kg and supports up to 90 kg of helmsmen.

    Glass and epoxy construction with carbon reinforcements, epoxy glass and carbon brackets, t-bar adjustable bayonet turret, tilting central drift (classic) and two retractable L-shaped foils both for displacement and for launching. Carbon mast with batten laminate mainsail, optional gennaker with bowsprit and snuffer.

    An interesting boat for an audience that is not "raced" but loves innovation.

    Arkema flying or extremely good "foil assist" rather than full flying-very cool:
