Doug Lord: Revised_SRT_sailplan_5-4-11_001

See the thread on "High Performance Self-righting Trimaran: the test model". This sail plan for the full size version(and model in light air) is 284 sq.ft. with square top jib and main. Masthead buoyancy designed to prevent turtling and rig will be designed and engineered to withstand a high speed pitchpole. Full size boat is 18' long(+ retractable gantry) and 22' wide-mostly carbon and fairly light. The model will test the self-righting capability of the concept. see thread for details:
