SYROCO first goal is : beating the sailing speed record on the water!

The record will be the team’s primary source of inspiration for the unique development of this capsule in order to test all the hypotheses in real life.

Being able to smash the record on the water will be the end result so that this innovation can highlight the beginnings of our new modes of future navigation on our oceans.

Everything is to be created” as Alex Cazergues says,there is a field of possibilities to be developed in order to make shipping carbon neutral and we were working on it.

Using all the new technologies developed around the foil and Kite wings have allowed us to imagine the unimaginable in order to make the force of the water and the wind work in total harmony to allow us to imagine this two-seater capsule floating between sky and sea
