Roger Glencross has a collection of Hapas or "Chiens de mer", made by Didier Coste and/or Stéphane Rousson (see http://www.seaglider.fr/Seaglider/Seagl ... story.html, http://www.seaglider.fr/Seaglider/Bienvenue.html, https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voilier_des_airs, https://www.bateaux.com/article/19065/ ... dirigeable, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KKnb0vQyzI.

Roger has used these at almost every Speedweek for many years in order to try to aeroglide using a hang-glider or a parachute but now has to stop due to age. He is offering any or all to a good home, that is somebody who would like to carry on in the footsteps of Hagedoorn, Costes, Rousson and Glencross, or at least sail a canoe like I did, or document them (drawings, photos, measurements). I could do the latter but Roger was quoted £2800 for shipping them from Weymouth to Switzerland where I live, even before customs duty!

So, anybody interested in collecting at Weymouth, please apply here or directly to Roger.
