There are several threads on this forum about wings and the commercial applications of kites and sails. Oracle has taken the lead in recycling carbon fiber including recycling one of Larry Ellisons ocean racers-Sayonara.

Now that is what I call change of market. First computer databases and software. Now recycling. I Holland we say: Schoenmaker blijf bij je leest. translated:

I found on google what I was looking for:

They're not changing their business-just participating in an effort to recycle carbon fiber and such...

35th America's Cup on Foils

I don't know-the best wing info is found in a thread in the "Aero Hydro" forum in a thread "Understanding Wing Technology".

Sorry, I don't understand how you're using the word "actual"?

35th America's Cup on Foils

Great article about Jimmy Spithills' injured elbow keeping him from the Sydney- Hobart Race-but whats more significant is that he had the injury during the America's Cup and was receiving cortisone injections so he could function:

The article says the 10 segmented wing provides most power. And that was 10 years ago. I think it's actual. Omly how to produce it and test it is a problem.
Perhaps I'll talk to my professor about this. I have an idea on the test facility, 30 meters long but it's going to cost a bundle. effective in 36th cup. Special reduction for team UK.

The conotation of this is crazy.
What are the design rules for 36th cup? We want to built a testing facility for the 10th segmented wings on 1:1 scale. Secretly and only for team UK.
