An unusual race happened in France last week. Athletes raced in ´flying boats´ which were boats that were powered by pedaling.
Nicolas Picard started the company JetCycle in 2020, but the idea of a flying boat came from two French professors in 2013. Picard explained that using a JetCycle boat looked like boat cycling. Then he put foil in the front and at the back, which made the boat fly. The boat cold move at the speed of around 9 kilometers per hour.
Picard hopes that people will enjoy this new activity, which combines sailing and cycling. One boat costs 12,000 euros, and Picard wants to sell 100 boats in the next three years.
