Mahalo Foil lovers,
this time we proudly present the tests runs of our well known project
refurbished Aclass cat on the foils. 
We move from our lake to the Adria side Portorož bay.

As I wrote before in blog the project was run in two steps

This time we cats some famous Bora wind in the bay, pushing the Luc
to handle with wind strength of 20knots+ in the gusts. This is the upper
limit for such a old cat adapted on the foils. All went well and Luc was
handling well the boat. Learning from each track more and more.
On such a single hand sailing cat the sailor must to put a lot of
effort on the trim of the boat! In all it is nice t see the L foil works well,
means the calculation of the foils and the construction was right done.
On the foils side the Windknife verticals was used /price, accessibility/
from there the molds for "L" foils was made. The same on the rudders,
ALU verticals and CFK rudder foils. To grain on the sustainability side
the wing spar was made from flax fiber composites, this is unique and
For the future we are looking for to use more of this materials also on the foils! 
As far we know this is the first cat on the foils in the region, build and sailed!


Thanks to all the crew members for support, the JK Pirat for the friendly stay,
Tina Mrak for the boat support, Moth flat to join us on the water.
Photo documentation as well the short video
 




Stay tuned

Mahalo foil Lovers,
time to wake up again, summer is going to the end
and it is time to point some news from workshop, studio
and from the water trials!
Long story short, two years ago we have chance to get two old
Aclass catamarans, from Adria based sailing club,
booth was on the trash list! Link to the fist stage of project.

For a price of a beer we get two cats in parts not complete!
Lucijan was put a lot of effort and time into the assembly
and finish. The fist stage was done year after
and he became new owner of A class cat in our Sail club!
For this year and a lot of Corona time decision was clear,
A class must to fly! So new foils was build, again a lot of preparation,
building time, finalizing! Some weeks ago the Oldynew touch the water again!
This time with the wings! With the budget of almost Zero, Null, Cero, Hуль /in comparison
to the leading world sail class foil projects :-) we reach complete new boat
with purpose of sporty daily cat sailboat, just like a Porsche on the water powered by wind!
To reach this the ALU verticals was keept windknife.com and the molds for the "L" foils,
plus rudders was made on new!
The result did not fall out, the OldAcat was made take off, on the first trays!
drLojz and Luc they made it again, all involved was happy as a hell!
Some photos from the doc and on the water!

Connected with the vision of backflow smoker the new holidays product was born!
 It smell well, it smoke well

 And it making tornado effect as well

December I started in Innsbruck on annual SCOTT ski test,
