Towing Ships with Kites: Child’s Play!

Published on 8 February 2024

Today, we bring you a true story. It’s the tale of Thierry Verstraete, a passionate sailor and traveler, who decided to set sail around the world with his children, Mazarine and Clément, and his wife Lydivine.

With a pioneering spirit, Thierry chose to embark aboard his vessel, the magnificent Deo Juvante, equipped with the #SeaKite system, our automated kite traction system for ships.

His ambition as a sailing enthusiast: to harness the wind, the energy he loves so much, in an entirely innovative way aboard his motor yacht, and to do so with his children.

Thierry Verstraete, along with his Deo Juvante and his very young crew, is currently making a stopover in Japan. In Fukukoa, on the island of Kyushu, they were joined by a small part of the Beyond the Sea team to introduce them to the basics of kite traction for ships.
