Blast from the past..

I thought BMW Oracle looked familiar....

So while the sailing World was thinking that wing sails on trimarans were new, I went home and dug out some photos of a craft, design and technology project I did when I was about 11 (quite a few years ago now!)

Wing sail, wave piercing hulls, T foil rudder, articulating floats.

Being a simple boat that was just meant to be set and released, it was never meant to fly a hull, so I adopted the pivoting float technique used on the Formula 40 ‘Adrenalin’.

Once a techno sailing geek always one.....

I hope you have some form of copyright on this design and that you will be taking legal action against the designers who clearly stole your idea!
