Abstract

An ongoing effort by the University of Minnesota to produce a high speed human powered watercraft has led to the design and construction of a second generation hydrofoil. This vehicle features a recumbent design with an enhanced man/machine interface, a dihedral wing, a mechanism actuated attitude control device and significant use of composite materials.
