Ullsater Sailborder

 

I checked on the brand and it turns out to be a Waszp hydrofoil dinghy, not a simple sailboard.

Tom Wilson: Take a look at this: http://www.waszp.com/gallery/waszp-lake-garda
Great! I'd think windsurfing might be a little more suited to the choppy waters of Ullswater? But what do I know?! smile

Better him than me..
Tom Wilson: I agree - I understand that it is possible to get quite wet in some conditions smile

Il a l'air de bien maîtriser sa voile.
Tom Wilson: Il semble certainement être très compétent

I never realised they could have a seat to sit on Tom.

This must be great fun if you manage to master it
Tom Wilson: He seemed to enjoy himself, Bill, in spite of being dumped in the water on at least on occasion that I saw smile
Well now.
Tom Wilson: They seem to be able to move at quite some speed!

A most unusual thing looking at the video.
Tom Wilson: Apparently it's a recently devised class of boat.
Great machine, Tom!
Tom Wilson: It certainly looks so - there wasn't sufficient wind for this guy to get up on the foils, so it just looked like a sailboard from a distance.
