It may sound familiar to you; it’s a lovely summer day on the water, but no wind….
The great frustration for every sailor, of course.
The sailors on our Dehler 34 have come up with something very creative! Grab a kiteboard and experience kitesurfing, but without wind!
A strange idea to try to waterski or kiteboard behind a sailboat, of course, but by using the mainsail halyard you are easily pulled up out of the water. The boat sails about 6-7 knots which is enough for a lot of fun on the water!
By zigzagging behind the boat you quickly make a lot of speed, making it all very smooth.
Do you also have a nice suggestion to do when there is no wind? Let us know!
