"I do not know if these are the views of Saint Exupery or Mermoz who gave me the desire to know the places they had developed their image and feelings they described in their books ... But need to join Brazil in flight on a microlight led me into one of the most dangerous adventures that I have been given to achieve "

Sailing

"After 15 years traveling the oceans on my sailboat charter and my big multihull racing, following a trail of 350 000 miles and several dozen Atlantic crossings, I always run to the far horizon curves continue fleeing constantly behind the waves. Atlantic, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Pacific, Indian are all maritime areas that have haunted and that always attract me with the same force! "

- Building of the boat is going ahead... Not so fast that I would like, but an once of hope is now in my mind...

 

May 2010 :

- Refit of the website guydelage.com

-  End of realization of all front panels of Dagda

- Search for financial partners to equip Dagda

 

April 2010 :

-       study of missions of Dagda in the Pacific…

 

March 2010 :

- The first prototypes of feasibility of the system of ventilation are operational. Several forms have been carried out and tested, and to ensure the main benefits of the system: a. efficiency of the ventilation - b. barrière anti-rain without destroying the flow of air - c. pliability and speed of installation- manufacturing costs reasonable.

- 16 March 2010 : Guy Delage and Larysa unite their fate to Antigua.

February 2010 :

The ass of Dagda is finished !!!… What an operational work surface for scientific expeditions !!

January 2010 :

The engines of Dagda are tested and operate even completely submerged. Dave Tether is withdrawn from the loop by Nigel Calder and the Homewood director … After a new calculation of dragged by Emanuel Alban, we are moving toward a version twice 9kW rather than twice 18kw. This will allow of having a margin on the production of the of the 22kw genset and we will reach 6,5 nodes on a normal cruise without very low energy consumption. Against the winds of 55- 60 kts, it will be possible to keep 3.5 - 4 kts speed.

December 2009 :

The society which must provide the Dagda electric engines have finally found a new partner for producing the engines and generators : Homewood, a subsidiary of Westinghouse… The problem is unlocked and all the materials grouped near Chicago.

November 2009 :

Guy Delage filed a new patent concerning the ventilation breakdown of boats at anchor. This new product allows the sailboats to be vented through the deck hatches even in harsh outside conditions (rain).
