This summer, Hydroptere will try to beat the Transpacific record between Los Angeles and Hawaii. It will be an historical attempt as it will be the first ocean crossing for a sailboat sailing 100% on foils, kinds of marine wings inspired by the principle of lift for aircrafts.
This prestigious edition (192 pages, 200 illustrations, format 30x30 with a fold-central section) will aim to celebrate an adventure and an exceptional boat. The publication in French and English is planned for this autumn. A German version is also under consideration.
