Wing Sail Technology : A wingsail is a form of marine propulsion similar to conventional sails. However, a wingsail is a built-up structure with airfoil cross-section, like an airplane wing, which shape can provide a much better lift-to-drag ratio than conventional sails.
A reversible airfoil generally wing-like in shape comprising at least two spaced apart rigid spars having at least two slots therethrough, bars projecting through the slots in each rigid spar, each end of each bar attaching to a flexible slat, and a common flexible movable skin adjacent the flexible slats thereby covering same to form a reversible airfoil. A series of the rigid spars and attending parts when covered by a common flexible skin and adapted to fit on a beam provides a unique sail for a sailboat. Additionally, a series of the rigid spars and attending components when covered by a common flexible skin and vertically mounted on a rotatable frame provides a reversible lift airfoil for a wind-powered generator.
