JESS, the hydrofoil trimaran supporting SailProof

We support JESS, JESS supports us

JESS, a unique hydrofoil trimaran

I’m sure that you notified, among the rewards for our Kickstarter campaign, that the SUPER VIP package has the distinctive feature of allowing you to receive the tablet and the various goodies during an event that will be held in Pornichet in a very special setting.

Indeed, you will have the joy of being welcomed aboard JESS, a fabulous and unique 40-foot hydrofoil trimaran which took part in the last Route du Rhum and is preparing to take part in the 2022 event. Gilles Buekenhout, its skipper, is supporting SailProof in its adventure and will allow you to test your “real life” tablet on a boat that happily exceeds 30 knots (and almost flies).

JESS, which we encourage you to follow (website in French here) was built on the model of the 60-foot ORMA. It can reach speeds of up to 32 knots and regularly leads its class in regattas.

Thanks again to Gilles for his support! And be sure we’ll stay by his side during the next Route du Rhum.
