Sea and wind are intimately associated.
A ship has to deal with these elements. It can be the plaything of their power, but it also can take benefit from their energy.
Ancients were smart enough to achieve this balance.
Let’s be smart again and imagine how to improve the efficiency of a sailing ship with today’s technology.
This project is about efficiency and self-sufficiency.
It investigates the optimal shapes for the hull and for the rig to suit a 70m autonomous yacht program.
