Czech Wa'apa

Vladimir Stepan built this Wa'apa in Prague, Czech Republic.  I like the 
design he painted on the sides.

Stepan has a website with construction photos.


  1. Very nice Wa'apa and looks like a clever reefing system - a bootlace style. Is the sail loose-footed? but I reckon the reefing could work even it it was laced - loosely.

  2. To DaveP: The sail is loose-footed. I had no chance to test the reefing system in action yet (I spent the rest of the summer sailing the Baltic on a bigger boat). So far I am pretty sure that the reefing will work, but I expect trouble unreefing.
