Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0872411A2] A new watercraft (10), having a sail, preferably free, is disclosed. Such a watercraft (10) comprising at least two "flat-bottomed" hulls (12) connected each other side-by-side by a proper connecting structure (bridge) (14). The hulls (12) that are used can be surf, windsurf type or the like provided that they are flat-bottomed. The watercraft according to the invention is also provided with a keel and a rudder (28) and substantially can be completely disassembled. In practice a watercraft of this kind combines features which are proper of wind-surfs with those which are proper of common sailboats and allows to sail starting directly from the beach during prohibitive or impossible conditions for conventional sailboats together with the possibility of all the points of sails, from the close-hauled sailing to the sail before the wind. <IMAGE>
