Tiamat / Kitedriven catamaran


After Windsurfing came kitesurfing, after sailing there is \"Tiamat\". Tiamat is an oceangoing catamaran that is driven by a kite. The concept is for a ride away from the coast for several days. The advantages of the kite is that is uses more constant wind in heights over 50 meter. Tiamat has beds for four persons, kitchen, shower, WC. The trend for water sports is bigger than ever, and in times of a lack of energy resources Tiamat is the alternative for sailing.
