Hawaiian Chieftain

A kiteboarder has collided with the Hawaiian Chieftain, an historic boat late, last Sunday on the Columbia River.

The crew of the Hawaiian Chieftain and the kiteboarder himself weren't hurt, although a crash has happened.

The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, which operates the Hawaiian Chieftain, said the incident happened at about 4:30 p.m. when dozens of people were onboard.

The kiteboarder sailed very close to the Chieftain and the kite lines entangled in the the boat's mast.

After the incident, the captain took the kiteboarder to the Hood River Marina and everybody relaxed. The Hood River is a very popular spot for kiteboarders.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
