“To one who has turned lifeless materials into a thing alive, there can never be anything more wonderful than a sailboat. The sailboat offends the senses of neither fish, nor fowl, nor man, and to make it go faster is to make it even more a thing of freedom and beauty.� ---Bernard Smith

consists of a hollow Upper Strut that can be canted up to 75 degrees taking the bulb out of the water at heel angles greater thav 15 degrees. A retractable Lower Strut reduces draft at the dock yet when extended maximizees Righting Moment while sailing. Electric motors that operate Upper Strut Canting Mechanism and Lower Strut Linear Actuator could be used to recuperate energy and recharge the battery pack. The entire keel assembly is removable for ease of transportation.

and the way they interact with each other. To achieve pure speed you need power, and efficiency; most of all efficiency. TM

SpeedDream36

has been designed with this in mind, from a

razor sharp bow that slices through waves, to a sculpted deck that sheds water quickly, to a unique canting keel that lifts clear of the water reducing drag and adding maximum TM

AN INNOVATIVE RACE COURSE

T

he driving principle behind SpeedTM

Dream36

is speed; pure, unbridled

speed. Part of this creative innovation is a whole new approach to racing, one that is loosley based on the hugely successful

person with the fastest time for the course wins.

or SpeedDream36

the boats will sail

two triangular courses crossing at the

slalom ski racing. Since it’s impos-

leeward mark. The competing boats will set

sible for all the skiers to race

off on two reaching legs and a single down-

down the mountain at the

wind leg before crossing onto the other race

course and repeating the pattern. If there

pairs, at timed

set of racers will take off at timed intervals.

and the

eams will race a number of timed races each day with the times aggregated.

The team with the lowest times for all races will be declared the winner.

I

t’s a simple concept intended to reinvigorate One Design Racing and to put

some of the sheer thrill and fun back into sailing. Remember - Speed Thrills.
