I guess that everybody know the Hydroptere the fastest sailboat on the planet and contrary to some rocket sailboats that can only sail fast on flat sea and protected waters, this animal is an offshore boat.

But perhaps you don't know that some of you, I mean Americans, will have a possibility to see it flying: The boat is going to be shipped to America to try to beat an offshore record, Los Angels to Honolulu, next Mars.

The boat is a creation of a group of passionate people but most of all an Alain Thébault dream.

Here is the story of a dreamer and is dream made true:
