Sailing helmet “the:dikkie” is is a light weight carbon helmet with a lined EPS shell on the inside. The used materials are durable and can withstand the harsh conditions at sea. As it was designed for offshore sailing, it has an open structure to accommodate as much ventilation as possible. It has an optional visor to prevent spray water from getting in the face of the sailor. The shape covers the most vulnerable parts to prevent the sailor from being knocked out. This helmet was developed together with Jules Dock
For an Amsterdam based company together with Jules Dock Composites we designed and developed a new type of composite watercycle with a more efficient propellor in stead of a paddle wheel. Other limitations were the limited space due to regulation, stability and the user experience within the boat. The boat had to be operated by two people with room for up to 4 persons and 2 children. They should have a comfy and social experience while enjoying the views of the Amsterdam waters. The chairs were adjustable to fit children as well as adults.
