L'Hydroptere.ch relaunched by HYDROS team for new season of record attempts on Lake Geneva

L'Hydroptere.ch was originally conceived as a testbed boat for the new L'Hydroptere Maxi.  These days it is owned and sailed by the HYDROS team and has just been launched for a new season of record attempts on Lake Geneva.

The arrival of spring marks the beginning of season for the flying boat, launched Thursday last in Morges. "Everything went well", says Daniel Schmäh, skipper the hydrofoil .ch. "we put the boat in the water crane and have directly lying it. The boat was well prepared and the perfect weather, the launch was fast and efficient! "After a day devoted to the installation of la baume, of the electronics and sails, the crew was able to navigate this weekend:"We had between 10 and 15 knots of wind, interesting conditions for the first navigation", says Guillaume Coyon, flight and boat captain of the hydrofoil .ch."small worries of hydraulic adjustments that we noticed during these two first navigations could be resolved.We therefore sailed again today. We could not yet make any actual measures to evaluate the changes made during the winter construction, the wind was still a little weak
