Wing sail technology
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.

Patent US4341176 - Air foil with reversible camber

Patent US4341176 - Air foil with reversible camber | Wing sail technology | Scoop.it
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.

America's Cup: Next generation to be fully foiling catamaran

America's Cup: Next generation to be fully foiling catamaran | Wing sail technology | Scoop.it

Despite being a multihull guy, American Gino Morrelli is among the most seasoned designers currently involved in the America’s Cup.


- The design rule is completed. The boats are designed to sail in a range of 6 to 30 knots, but the final rig size will be determined when the venue is selected.

- Reducing the size of the boat from 72-feet to 62-feet will reduce the loads by half, which will reduce structural costs.

- The smaller size boat will require less sailing crew (from 11 to 8) and less support crew, thus reducing the budget needed.

- Wing dimensions will be tightly specified, which will reduce design costs.

- Hull shape will have more bow volume to improve safety.

- Boats will foil on all points of sail.
