Kite Sailing Symposium
Seattle, Washington
September 28-30, 2006 These three innovators have followed very different paths in their kite sailing development. Peter Lynn has been driven by the notion that a personal kite sailboat displaying greater control, speed, and maneuverability will lead to bigger and better boats and kite systems. Dave Culp, on the other hand, has shown that a lower-tech kite, married to any sailboat, will offer higher performance and more sailing enjoyment. Montague has harnessed the power of kites to ocean canoes and has targeted the thrill-seeker and environmental tourist. Drachen Foundation scientific kite experts Joe Hadzicki and Dave Lang will moderate a group discussion probing kite/sail design, hull design, market potential, and a variety of other timely issues. This symposium is located on the water at The Center for Wooden Boats, an interactive museum where small craft heritage is enjoyed, preserved, and passed along to future generations. Please see

Winch Systems for Kite Sailing.
6m Cat. Winch detail c 2002
Kitesailing will be regulated out of existence before getting properly started if this isn't solved before those who are not believers notice it.
Line extruding from pump tube
Line pushing seal system
And it is certainly possible to build winch systems that address all the above problems, but they will be complex, exponentially so as the number of lines to be controlled increases from 2 to 3, to 4 and often now 5, and the potential for catastrophic snarl ups can probably never be eliminated.
Some accompanying pictures are of a simple four-line winch system for a 6m purpose built kite sailing catamaran in 2002. It has full control while letting out and pulling in, but does not have any system for retaining tension in the lines between the winch drum and the end pulleys, has no direct way for the flier to sense line tensions, nor any registration correction. This boat was potentially lethal- quite a few people have tried it, none were very keen to go again- because of the risk of drum snarls, looping between the drums and end pulleys, lack of feel, and very nervous-making loss of control as line lengths lost register when they were pulled in and let out under varying tension.
