Il termine kitesailing potrebbe essere tradotto "veleggiando con gli aquiloni". Si tratta leggere (generalmente trimarani). Il kitesailing rientra in quella categoria di sport
KITE-SAILING Il termine Kitesailing potrebbe essere tradotto "veleggiando con gli aquiloni". Si tratta infatti di uno sport che consiste nel praticare tutte le normali tecniche di navigazione a vela (traverso, lasco, bolina e poppa) in un'ampia gamma di venti, utilizzando al posto delle vele, aquiloni acrobatici per il traino di imbarcazioni leggere (generalmente trimarani).
Il Kitesailing rientra in quella categoria di sport aquilonistici che vanno sotto il nome comune di POWER KITING, cioè sport che utilizzano modelli di aquiloni capaci di sviluppare una notevole forza trainante. Fin da quando è stato proposto la prima volta, è stato subito evidente che questo divertentissimo sport si sarebbe imposto rapidamente, attraendo anche persone che probabilmente non avrebbero provato interesse per l'aquilonismo acrobatico, e andando ad occupare una nicchia ricreativa simile a quella del windsurf. Dal 1987 il neozelandese Peter Lynn , un ingegnere meccanico con una lunga esperienza come consulente nelle regate dei 12 m., si dedica con grande impegno e passione alla ricerca per lo sviluppo nel settore del Kitesailing. A lui infatti si deve sia il progetto di un aquilone dal rivoluzionario profilo ellittico (il Peel) capace di sviluppare grande trazione, sia il progetto del Buggy (il triciclo con sterzo diretto utilizzato per correre sulla terraferma) e praticare quindi il BUGGYING, sia ancora quello di uno speciale trimarano (BUGGY BOAT) il cui standard adesso in commercio è il risultato della realizzazione di una quarantina di prototipi.

e-mail: Here's my proa "Whigmaleerie" during a speed run at the 1987 Johnnie Walker/RYA Speed Trials in Weymouth, England. She's powered here by a massive 5-stack of 12 ft Flexifoil kites on 150' flying lines (the fifth kite is pale yellow, and can just be seen). That's an array 12 ft wide, by 32 ft high, with over 14 sq. m. area, on a boat weighing just 140 lbs.

14. Kitesailing. Example Of Kite Driven Boat.
Sjors kitesailing page. Examples, theory and design of kiteboat. This includes kites, lift to drag ratios, kiteboat kite sailing lift drag and features like power weight displacement aerodynamic
Examples of kitesailing / surfing:
This is the BMW Oracle boat just after the 2003 Louis Vitton Cup. They are testing a kite wich replaces a spinaker. Maybe we can see more of this in the next Louis Vitton and Americas cup.
This is a photo of a little catamaran doing 30 kts. More suprisingly this is done in 15 kts of wind. The kites are flexifoils. These are 2 line kites without bridle and they are wellknown for their speed.
Already in 1987 this proa design was flying over the water. 14 m2 of sail on a boat with sailor weighing appr. 135kg. This results in a sailarea to wheight ratio of 103!!
Some professional surfers are trying to break the world speed record of 46.52 kts which is held by Yellow Pages. This is Robby Naish on a board powered by a naish X3 kite. This configuration gave him 38kts in appr. 30kts of wind. With a conventional surfsail in the same week 43.9 kts was acheived. This is an indication that the conventional sail is still more efficient than a kite.
Are kitedriven boats better?
The main advantage for a kite powered vessel is that the kite does not apply a momentum (or maybe a very small one) on the hull. A conventional rig does and therefore monohulls have a weight under the keel to keep upright and multihulls are very beamy. Kiteboats don't need the wheight of a monohull and don't need the width of the catamaran to compensate the moment, because there isn't one. This results in a extremely light and very simple hull which can also have a satisfying angle of vanishing in the stability curve. This is not possible in conventional mastrigged monohulls or multihulls.

Sailing by means of kite power is treated from an historical perspective, including current research and world speedsailing record attempts. The theory of kitesailing is applied to several types of watercraft: displacement craft, planing craft, and hydrofoils. The activities of the authors over the past several years are documented, and future plans are discussed. The primary focus is on the technology which can allow monohulls to regain the speed advantage now held by multihulls, while retaining the seakindliness advantages of monohulls, including the ability to provide safe transportation to port after dismasting at sea.

16. Kitesurfing International Safety System.
KISS is the international kitesailing school qualification system. Features instructional systems, safety techniques, and instructor standards for kitesurfing schools.
Kitesurfing International Safety System The K.I.S.S. system sets a worldwide standard for kitesurfing Instructors and Schools. The KISS System protects the future of kitesurfing by promoting safe kitesurfing practices and improving the accessibility of the sport. The KISS certifies all levels of kitesurfer from beginner to instructor trainer. The KISS network is constantly expanding and is bringing safe kitesurfing practices to the world. The K.I.S.S. system is the world's first kitesurfing teaching system. The KISS System was developed in Hawaii by kitesurfing trainers, David Dorn, Flash Austin and John Holzhall with assistance from Sierra Emory and Dave Terry. We also thank the many other kiteboarders who have contributed to the program. The KISS teaching system is kept constantly up to date with the latest developments in the sport. Since its origin in Hawaii, the KISS techniques are now being taught in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and France.
Students learn basic kite control at this level. Utilizing a progressive range of kites they learn; equipment setup, safety systems, kite theory, steering, powerzones, safety protocols, launching, Landing, body drags, emergency stops and self rescue. The emphasis is on safety and technical information. Students should be able to demonstrate all the above skills to a competent standard.

Inventors unveil purpose-built kitesailing powerhouse
French inventors Dominique and Bruno Legaignoux have introduced a radical and powerful new kite specifically for the kitesailing market. This inflated armature, curved surface kite (it's actually a "slice" of a sphere) is very light, strong and purportedly easy to control in all winds. The Legaignoux brothers build it in sizes from 7m2 to 17m2 (75-185 sq. ft.) and claim it can be launched and controlled by one man, in deep water, without assistance. The Legaignoux's bring impressive credentials to kitesailing. Past French junior sailing champions, charter boat skippers and, for the past four years, full time kite inventors and developers, the 28- and 29-year-old brothers clearly do nothing halfway. Future projects include a search for a sports manufacturer to purchase rights to and build the kite commercially; using the kite for paragliding (flying non-rigid hangliders-usually done with high efficiency parafoil wings); and developing its use over ice, snow and sand. The Legaignoux's encourage correspondence. Write to them at: 26 Chemin de Kernoter, 29000 Quimper, France.
