We have been involved in high level sailboat development for many years, combining our engineering understanding with our sailing experience, both inshore and offshore.
In any engineering design, it is important to understand the materials. We have made textiles and both hard and soft composites a subject of special study. This is especially valuable in the design of complex fiber layouts:
Our software suite accurately deals with all the above deck components and leads the design team to an integrated solution.
The dynamic behaviour of the rig is one of the more challenging topics of the coming years on both computing and engineering sides. Our research has lead to some advanced solutions.
