Direct of apparent wind above gaff or under boom for litle sails placed there is less sharp. The angle of attack can be the same.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] How do you calculate the induced drag of these?
The wind blowing a round the boom or gaff has a less sharp angle. If it were to set small sails there would give a beneficial force forward. I...
I am looking for solution to use as power flow through the edges.
Infinite span this is low stiffness and a weak cross section of the sail. How to use the intense air flow under the boom or over the gaff ?
Induced drag at the ends of the sails and keel is the enemy's of the speed. What to do to reduce it ? Any drawings are welcome.
Bulb canting keel should fly above water.
In my opinion it would be necessary to build a smaller scale boat with canting keel and light canting foils and a boat with heavy canting foils....
In my opinion, the center of gravity should travel better with light carbon foils and heavy lead or uranium flying canting bulb keel. In a bulb of...
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] I'am sorry but I have to publish drawings one more. There was a mistake in the previous drawings. Sails shall be directed to the...
Extremal round bow and stern. :)
Here are any changes. I do not know how to get a turn on the third mast ?[ATTACH]
The speed of this boat is not shocking.
That's my shot at AC36. No any resistance forwind foils for wind.
