Hi Eric, thanks for posting.

Yes they are studying a big bird and I hope these difficult times won't cut their funding. The LIBRYD will be bigger, will have a rigid sail and on the back, instead of having a a foil on the central hull will have two, one on each ama.

We can see here the two boats, well the three because they have already a small one that is a sort of laboratory for the Libryd, the Hydropter.ch, that sails on the Geneve lake and is beating records. The boat has already sail at almost 40K and can maintain sustained speeds near 30K. Remember that this is a very small boat. Look at the picture:
