The future of sailing?

Its always interesting being involved in something new, kites have always pushed the boundaries of what is possible on the water and to a large extend they have broken all expectation over the last fifteen years. Now there is a new era dawning on us and that is the era that crosses over with the sailing industry. Boats have been powered by sail for as long as anyone can remember but over the past few moths we have been filming with Kite Tender, they are looking to take the sailing world by storm and introduce and new, two man, high performance sailing dingy to the market. This time powered by kites! No mast, no rigging, minimum clutter and a top speed of 25 knots... Could this be one watch for the future!?
