Dinghy "Valkyrie" was officially launched on 07.07.2007 in the village of Ustya (Vologda oblast) during the "Competition of masters-boaters".
During the development of this project aim: on the one hand to create a Dinghy suitable for participation in a sailing race with a crew: 2 adults or 3 teenagers.
On the other hand, to create a Dinghy the most fit for family walks and hikes in major rivers and lakes of the North-West of
Russia under sail, under oars or motor.
And thirdly, it would be quite possible to build our in home (garage) conditions. And this we managed to do!
Due to its contours Valkyrie has a very mild course, even in the excitement, with a strong fair wind is able to move in the "surfing".
At the service of more effective Dinghy sails larger (up to 13 sq m + Spinnaker) it is possible for it to become a great racing "shell",
similar to the class of "470", which is able to interest even the most experienced boaters.
Therefore, it may well become a candidate for the national Dinghy classes.
This vessel is much more difficult to build than a centerboard yacht "Chizh-2" is the next "step" in the squatter. Pointed and keeled the hull of the Dinghy
(2 cheeks) built of plywood 6 mm thick on traditional technology. For the sizing of the cheekbones applied technology «Stitch and Glue».
