We -as Istanbul Technical University Waterbike Team- have been working on waterbike project since 2002 and attend the waterbike races since then. Three different designs had been made but the last one, whose name is “Kaplan“, we tried a different design. This is the first time that we attend the races with two boats, the other one is “Mekik“. We are completely sure that this year, in Hamburg, the organization will be great and we are looking forward to be there!!!
