DSC00044Already a regular regatta winner, the trimaran will continue to evolve until it reaches the state of a fully developed concept.

The advantages of the wing sail are more evident up wind, with an angle 5° to 10° closer than the classic sail would allow.DSC01922

 

Crafting of the mast has been carried out with very special care.

Made of unidirectional carbon fiber and stratified epoxy, vacuum bagged and heated at 75°C.

The sail is equipped with whisbone battens linked around the mast through triangular pieces (patent 2002). In this system, the wind pressure contributes to deforming the batten in order to optimize the shape of the sail whatever the direction of the wind (port or starboard)
