Hungarian Stealth

STEALTH features:

Comfortable sitting out, unlike tubes or conventional gunwale
The "splat" effect from the buoyant wings helps stop the "death roll"
Rotating mast and high aspect ratio sail for better pointing and increased offwind speed
Minimised wetted surface area increases lightweather and windward speed
Narrow stern sinks with crew weight aft to reduce nosediving

Dozens are now building worldwide, the photo above is of a Hungarian Stealth

As I am away in Canada much of the time I don't sail my own Stealth any more. Therefore I have regretfully decided that it has to go!

It was launched in late 1998 and has been raced successfully all round the UK. Comes complete with bright yellow mylar sail, Proctor mast, carbon/cedar daggerboard and combi trailer.
