Speed, Safety and Comfort
At Ocean, more than any other place, adaptation is required
Especially to wind and sea conditions, which well handled let you reach your destination. This is an art by itself, and there are probably infinite ways to carry out, but we believed in this one:

This simply fact is a Safety Feature, because you can escape adverse weather systems, choose the best sailing area for boat and crew and moreover Reach Refuge Faster.
Speed is also Fun. Gliding or surfing at more than 15 knots, only powered by wind, is an indescribable feeling. You pass to sail with the hull into the water to be over the water. That imply that instead of be rolled by the waves, one start to fully enjoy waves. Surfing is easy and safe because you sail with the wave or in a very similar speed, instead of just be reached and pushed with uncomfortable rolling. Safety and Fun of VELOX Speed, is Something Achievable by Everybody.
