â€œTo 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.â€? ---Bernard Smith
â€œIt was always my intention to start with a blank piece of paper. Once you eliminate anything that already is, and replace it with anything that could be, the possibilities are limitless.â€? ---Vlad Murnikov Project Leader and Design Coordinator

EXTREME CANTING KEEL TM
The SpeedDream36 Ultimate Canting Telescoping Keel
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.

AN INNOVATIVE RACE COURSE

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
