We periodically send out a short Newsletter with the latest model updates, any manufacturer news, industry highlights and the latest information on forthcoming major boat shows. Maxi trimaran Banque populaire has smashed the round-the-world record, completing a circumnavigation from France to France in 45 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes.
The 40m trimaran screamed around the world with average 620 mile days – truly exhilirating! Thomas Coville set sail on Saturday on an attempt to beat the round the world single handed record yesterday and almost ended the voyage within sight of the start line! Sailing a 100ft trimaran around the world single-handed is no mean feat, but I doubt he would have wanted this sendoff!  Rounding Ushant with a helicopter following and filming the big trimaran caught a gust and started to trip over her toes.  Happily she settled down again and he was able to continue on this 17000 mile trip around the world which he hopes to do in less than 57 days 13 hours and 34 minutes.
The 60ft L’Hydroptere (from the Greek hydros, water, and ptera, wing), is a hydrofoil trimaran (the foils are actually underwater wings).
Alain Thebault, designer and skipper of this Formula 1 of the seas, had always dreamt of making a boat fly.
Never let it be said that your scribe is biased!  Here are some latest shots of the BMW Oracle trimaran with a bit of breeze. The UAE will probably have less sea state and wind than was expected in Valencia, and I would not be surprised to see BWM Oracle either go back to the drawing board for a new, lighter design for the lighter air or radically revise this boat. It’s worth pointing out the world sailing speed record stands at just north of 50 Knots, so these boats are close to that in the most demanding of conditions. The BOR 90, a 100-foot trimaran engineered and operated by BMW Oracle Racing, is the official American challenger for the 33rd Americas Cup, which takes place in February 2010.
The wing has two to three times the power of a soft sail andalso offers greater control for its sailors: A firm sail gives them theability to trim quicker and provides no opportunity for possibledistortion, an advantage over a soft sail, says aeronauticalspecialist Joseph Ozanne. Even though such a concept works on paper, this is the first time this idea has been executed—and at an investment of over 40,000 hours in design, development andproduction. While Boston escaped the wrath of the blizzard, a big chunk of the eastern seaboard did not not. James Mort was skiing with Australian ski buddies Andrew and Dan, and local friend Leonard at Les Crosets. Stefan Ager was celebrating at the top of the mountain in the Stubai Alps with a friend, filming the scenery and preparing to descend on their skis. Discovery and its six-member crew are on a mission to deliver the Permanent Multipurpose Module and Robonaut 2, the dexterous humanoid astronaut helper, to the International Space Station. In a winter marked by several crippling storms, the storm of February 1–2, 2011, stands out.
The monster storm brought record snowfall to many areas, including Chicago, perhaps the hardest hit population center.
NASA scientists announced that they found a form of microbe that apparently evolved the ability to use otherwise toxic arsenic in their biochemistry!
Mono Lake has a pH of 10, about twice the saltiness of ocean water and a high concentration of arsenic. Study lead author Felisa Wolfe-Simon and her colleagues Professor Davies and Ariel Anbar of Arizona State University initially suggested in a paper an alternative scheme to life as we know it.
From the background of the participants it sounds more like they have found some extra-terrestrial basis for life that is different from most life here on Earth.
To further this hypothesis, we have embarked on two different approaches to test assimilatory arsenic utilization. Pamela was a primary author of  Geochronology and Mars Exploration which focuses on the planetary process as a foundation for framing geological and biological evolution.
Steven Benner, distinguished fellow, Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution, Gainesville, Fla. Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, with a dense atmosphere and bodies of liquid on its surface.
The Cassini–Huygens mission in 2004 discovered liquid hydrocarbon lakes in Titan’s polar regions. In the sinkhole picture, the groundwater burst through the roof of the underground cave, letting the soil fall in and eventually creating a collapse sinkhole. The US Coast Guard has published a few videos showing the underwater efforts to stop the gushing oil. Here is a video as they lower the 100-ton containment dome to the sea bed May 7, 2010 as part of an effort to contain the leak from the Deepwater Horizon well. Will the world of book publishing be subject to the same revolution as the music industry because of digital content? Digitization makes possible a world in which anyone can claim to be a publisher and anyone can call him- or herself an author. With all of the non-traditional sport focus on the Olympics, I nearly missed the news that the America’s Cup sailing competition was happening in Valencia Spain.
During an April storm in 1934, a wind gust of 231 miles per hour (372 kilometers per hour) threw itself across the summit of Mount Washington. On January 22, 2010, the World Meteorological Organization released a report stating that a new world record wind speed was recorded on April 10, 1996 in Barrow Island, Australia during Typhoon Olivia.
Mount Washington can still call itself the home of the windiest place in the Northern Hemisphere. That means enjoying the playoffs for the thrill of the competition and thinking ahead to next year.

Since the quotes are from The Wire there is lots of language that you don’t want your kids (or your boss to hear). A fascinating, in depth video on the history of the original J Class America’s Cup competitor, Rainbow, and the high-tech replica constructed in Holland. The J-Class yachts have been captivating yachtsmen and landlubbers alike for decades, and HJB’s Rainbow continues that tradition. The owner of Rainbow approached the naval-architecture firm Dykstra & Partners in 2007 to recreate Burgess’ design. Still on the subject of the hybrid system, Rainbow’s batteries can reportedly charge while she’s sailing. As you would expect of a proper J-Class yacht, Rainbow has a traditional mahogany-paneled interior. When you consider that the original Js lacked interiors, and certainly luxury, Rainbow’s intimate relaxation rooms are all the more appreciated.
Whether the owner is hosting family and friends, or charter guests are aboard, the formal dining area comes into play. The owner of Rainbow wanted to have peace and quiet overnight in the master suite as well as all guest areas, so the battery bank that HJB and WhisperPower designed is quite helpful. Surely, Rainbow will race again, whether only against her fellow Js or alongside other classic and modern sailing yachts.
For more information and specs on this incredible sailing machine, read Rainbow Rides Again or contact HJB.
The America’s Cup Match and preliminary eliminations will take place in 2013 in larger similar-looking catamarans, but the 45-foot one-design version used for the America’s Cup World Series in August 2012 makes its own bold statement. Teams representing France and Britain (shown), along with New Zealand, China, Sweden, Italy, and Korea race upwind past the tallest building in San Francisco, the Transamerica Pyramid. Just to the west of the World Series racing area stands the most famous feature of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, under which the thermal winds of summer regularly blow at 20 to 30 knots. Under the Golden Gate, Oracle Racing’s AC45 sails at faster than 20 knots, flying one hull.
The new boats carry sponsor stickers and bold graphics on their sails, while still cutting a traditional form as they fly across the gray waters of San Francisco Bay.
Oracle and Artemis offer a look at the structure of their wingsails, two super-light adjustable sections supported by a rotating carbon mast at the front. America’s Cup champ Russell Coutts, who won the match-race portion of the World Series, guides his cat downwind past Alcatraz Island, just off the City Front; note how tightly the sails are trimmed due to the forward wind created by the speed of the boat. The international fleet awaits its next race beside the harbor breakwater, providing the large crowd of spectators with close-up views of the boats at the World Series event. Oracle Racing skipper James Spithill, who won the fleet racing segment of the World Series, steers past yet more shoreside crowds. A close-up view of the Swedish Artemis Racing boat, skippered by Terry Hutchinson, shows the complexity of the boats, and the athleticism of the crews.
Fleet racing features a reaching start and a crowded first mark rounding with plenty of all-star company.
Bearing away from the wind, James Spithill accelerates and digs his bows deep, but their streamlined shape, on deck as well as below, usually permits recovery. Against the backdrop of the Marin Headlands, water flies on this windy practice day aboard skipper Dean Barker’s boat, Emirates Team New Zealand. At a crowded mark-rounding during the series, Emirates deploys its gennaker while boats from the Prada and Oracle teams wait their turn to turn downwind and set their biggest foresails.

Emirates Team New Zealand and China Team (shown) both capsized in World Series practice sessions. San Francisco Bay provides a dynamic field of play for sailors; competitors must plan their courses to allow for strong, shifting currents and incessant ferryboat traffic. Anyone who follows the history of sailboat racing is likely familiar with the storied J Class yachts. An enormous amount of research went into determining optimal longitudinal stiffness, righting moments, sail plan, and the related loads. As much as Lionheart’s owner wanted to bring this America’s Cup design to fruition, he also wanted to make her a comfortable cruiser. For times when racing ends and cruising is on the agenda, the center and aft cockpits will be fitted with tables for dining.


The owner’s cockpit, meanwhile, affords a lovely location to enjoy breakfast or a nightcap at anchor.
When Lionheart debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, as part of the YPI Brokerage display (a division of Yachting Partners International), she was sandwiched between far more modern-looking megayachts. The scale of the wing relative to the crew is clearly evident in this training photo, as two of three hulls fly in light winds, powered by the wingsail and a bowsprit-mounted gennaker.
The 33rd America’s Cup took place in Valencia, Spain, last February with a sleek catamaran, the 90-foot long, 80-foot wide Alinghi 5, sailing to defend the Cup for Societe Nautique de Geneve. By the time the first race took place on 12th February, many pundits had picked the challenger to win, but according to one of the men who engineered the boat’s wingsail and then kept it flying even as its designers made it 7.5 meters taller, the result was not a foregone conclusion.
The effort by the challenger, BMW ORACLE Racing, to design, build, and compete in a machine such as USA required a large team of sailors, designers, builders, even scientists, and each had a key role to play and a unique perspective.
For those who didn’t follow the prologue to the 33rd America’s Cup, the timing, location and many of the conditions for the event were essentially mandated by court decision, since the challenger and defender couldn’t agree between themselves.
December 2007: Building commences in Anacortes, Washington, on a 90-foot trimaran for a race in an unknown location and date, possibly as early as July 2008 (but subsequently delayed repeatedly by legal proceedings).
January 2009: Starting to build “M3”, a third mast, to try to improve light-wind performance.
April, 2009: In addition to building M3, the design team meets in Valencia and gets the green light to build a wingsail, too, because of its potential to provide even more power in lighter winds. October, 2009: The wingsail is almost ready and arrives in several parts in San Diego for assembly. November 10, 2009: The wingsail assembly is complete and fitted to the trimaran – the ball joint doesn’t quite fit at first and needs a few thousandths of an inch trimmed off. November 12, 2009: Even though wingsails operate best without headsails because their shape can be made the fullest and most powerful, testing with headsails begins to ensure that even more power can be generated in light winds. November 16, 2009: The bottom of the first of the aft-flap elements breaks off where the traveler line attaches.
December 9, 2009: After less than a month of testing, the wingsail is disassembled for transport. January 18, 2010: Still wanting more power, Mike Drummond had wanted to build an extra element to extend the wingsail by 8 metres. January 20, 2010: Coal dust from a nearby industrial part of the Valencia port interrupts the raising and lowering one of the curved foils in the outboard amas (also called “floats”), costing the team half a day. January 23, 2010: “A great day of sailing,” Scott says, describing their first sail in strong winds, a prelude to some stormy winter weather on the Med.
February 4, 2010: Part of the frame in the fourth aft-element flap is discovered broken, likely due to the drop, twelve days earlier. February 14, 2010: Race 2 starts in late afternoon, and Alinghi draws another penalty, this time for being inside the starting area when the sequence begins. Normally, Scott told me, when installing a mast on a big new racing boat, such as one of the Volvo Ocean Race 70-footer’s masts he is currently designing, you have six months to tune the rig perfectly. A few days after our interview, Scott sent me an e-mail saying, “Although there were many challenges along the way, I had good confidence in all that we did, and a lot of pride that we delivered many engineering solutions against a very challenging time schedule.
The team at BMW ORACLE Racing known as the WingSail Workshop included Tim Smyth (builder), Scott Ferguson, Steven Robert, Herve Devaux, Dave Hubbard, Andrew Gaynor, Christoph Erbelding, Dimitri Despierres, Thiha Win, Eduardo Sanchez, and Mike Drummond. John Burnham has covered several America’s Cup matches and is past chairman of the America’s Cup Hall of Fame Selection Committee. Thankfully neither the whale nor I was injured, but I think we were both equally shocked by the encounter! As we have seen already in the last cup, this promises to be a beast of a boat, fast and furious.
The historic record of more than 50 knots over one nautical mile is powerful because it lies at the frontier between the twin capacities of this extraordinary flying trimaran that is both a high-speed craft and an ocean-going sailboat.
It is a sleek and elegant craft with a central hull and a mast 28m high, stabilised by two side floats separated from the hull by huge 24m carbon crossbeams built at the Airbus plant in Nantes. After 20 years of research and development, the flying boat is now a robust, powerful craft thanks to the help of eight retired engineers from Dassault Aviation and EADSAirbus who volunteered their time.
For BMW Oracle to win, they have to beat Alinghi, the reigning vessel from the United Arab Emirates. The wing, which is adapted directly from its airplane cousin, is constructed of carbon fiber and Kevlar and covered with an aeronautical shrink film that keeps it slippery.
Heavy snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid wind battered about two thirds of the United States, making it “a winter storm of historic proportions,” said the National Weather Service. Eastern Time on February 2, the National Weather Service reported that 21 states from New Mexico to New Hampshire had received at least 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow. The city received 20.2 inches of snow, a record for February and the third biggest snowstorm for any date in Chicago. Images of previous 2010-11 winter storms in December and January can be viewed in the severe storms section of the Earth Observatory. The bacteria was found in Mono Lake, an extremely alkaline and salty lake in California near the Nevada border. The scientists’ idea was that there might be life in which arsenic and arsentates could work in place of phosphorus and phosphates. To their surprise, the microbes eventually took up arsenic and incorporated it into the phosphate groups that cling to the bacteria’s DNA. That means the bacteria are not second type of life on Earth, but merely adapted to work with arsenic in place of phosphorus.
Essentially, arsenic (in the oxidized 5+ state as arsenate) is biologically, so similar to phosphate that many enzymes cannot recognize the difference. He was an early proponent that the methane on Titan could play the role that water plays for life here on Earth. After all that same Charles River that runs along the Back Bay is the same river that has over-spilled its banks throughout Metro West. The six pumps in the dam are pushing over three million gallons of water per minute from the Charles River Basin into the harbor. It’s really tough when the team lays an egg like the Patriots did today in their playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens. An enterprising soul put together the video below of some of the best quotes from the series. So if you have not watched the entire series and are planning to watch it, you may only want to watch the first few minutes. She’s a replica of the same-named America’s Cup winner from 1934, and the 131-footer stays true to her original design, the work of Starling Burgess. Rainbow’s incredibly compact engine room features a battery bank and 50-kW genset (termed a Genverter by WhisperPower because of its generator and inverter functions).
The need to adhere to the original lines penned by Burgess meant a finite amount of space could be developed. Because Rainbow holds true to Burgess’ clean, working-deck design, you won’t find an alfresco dining table. Four months after hand over, she competed against Lionheart, Ranger, and Velsheda in J-Class-only regattas in Falmouth and the Solent. When she does, her owner and her crew would be wise to keep the story of the original Rainbow in mind. Its mainsail is an articulating laminate-covered wing while the forward sail is a “traditional” laminated roller-furling gennaker. The backdrop includes the Presidio and the Palace of Fine Arts, built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Gold-medal sprinter Michael Johnson achieved notoriety as guest crew for Russell Coutts when he fell off as the boat accelerated. Re-righting a capsized boat is achieved with help from support boats; the wing sails sometimes comes through unscathed. They emerged after the Universal Rule (which controlled the size and displacement of America’s Cup racers) was adopted in 1930.
For the survivors, major restoration projects started in the 1970s and continued through the late 1990s. Some are embracing the creature comforts of today’s luxury yachts, so that they can be used for pleasure cruising as much as for competition. Guests will only get use of the center one, however; the aft cockpit is part of the owner’s private area. Still, show-goers couldn’t help but stop and take a second look when they spied her long lines and low deckhouses. Lined up against her was USA, a trimaran that was 90 feet long and 90 feet wide, sailing for the Golden Gate Yacht Club of San Francisco. This is an amazing story of innovation, a race against the clock to build something never done on this scale before – and to do it just in time for the Cup Match. For one insider’s view, we sat down a few weeks after the racing with Scott Ferguson, who designs high-tech masts from his office in Jamestown, Rhode Island, and Scott replayed the events of the previous year in fast forward. Given that the wingsail was raised experimentally for the first time in November, only three months before the eventual Match, the dominance of USA, winning each of the two 40-mile races on the Mediterranean by several minutes, is that much more remarkable. The team meets next in Anacortes and finalizes a list of materials needed, including carbon fibre, Kevlar, and Nomex core to carry the loads and fibre-reinforced aircraft-grade film spread across the structure to capture the power of the wind. Soon, M3 proves that the larger sails it flies can lift the trimaran’s centre hull out of the water sooner than the shorter M2.
The wingsail has a smaller but more efficient sail area and theoretically will be able to fly two of the three hulls even sooner than M3.
The team is faced with the question of whether M4 can be built in time for a Match that may take place on February 8th (but may not, given that several conditions for the racing are still being debated in court and between the teams).
Instead of rebuilding or replacing a ripped sail, this is a matter of rebuilding and reinforcing a piece of structure and reapplying the polyester film. The main element has a brief “flying” episode and elements are damaged as the structure is moved to the ship that will take boat and sail to Spain.


The Wingsail Workshop team gave him 7.5 metres (the same dimension as all the other elements), and with the new piece added, the wingsail is now 68 metres above the deck (223 feet).
Small repairs are regularly needed to the wingsail, so it’s lowered every night – a time-consuming process. Mike Drummond tells the Wingsail Workshop team to come up with a “go sailing today” fix, simulating what they might have to do if this were a race day. USA enters the starting area flying two hulls (at a speed in the “high 20s,” the skipper says) and engages quickly with Alinghi 5, which is penalised for a right-of-way infringement. Mike Drummond had predicted that the wingsail could be ready after five weeks in the boat, and that’s almost exactly how it turned out. And congratulations to the whole BMW ORACLE team on making this 223-foot wingsail really fly. When he is not working on masts (and wingsails), Scott Ferguson is usually racing his Laser; he is the current Laser Masters world champion. The innovative design of the boat, which flies on submerged wings, cleverly constructed out of carbon and titanium, make it much faster, more durable and lightweight (only 6.5 tonnes).
Also like an airplane, the wing consists of two parts, a single piece that rotates around the mast, and a series of hinged flap elements along the trailing edge that can be quickly and efficiently adjusted.
This animation—made with images from the NOAA-NASA GOES 13 satellite—shows the giant storm developing and moving across the country between January 31 and February 2. This constitutes the basis for much of the toxicity of arsenate and so most detoxification pathways in biology aim to reduce arsenate to more volatile forms for easier removal from biological systems. You would think that Storrow Drive, the Esplanade and the Hatch Shell would be under water. That the contents of the world’s libraries will eventually be accessed practically anywhere at the click of a mouse is not an unmixed blessing. The snowboard halfpipe is fun, but I can’t tell when one person is doing better than the other. But the new Rainbow also incorporates several striking departures, not the least of which is her aluminium construction. They supply the same power as two gensets aboard other Js, which also have larger engine rooms. Certainly, guests can enjoy the cockpit on pleasure cruises, but meals are more suitable inside. The same raised and fielded mahogany joinery, nicely contrasted by white panels and overheads, that is found throughout the other relaxation areas adorns the bulkheads and custom furnishings. Commissioned by Harold Vanderbilt, Rainbow was named in anticipation of a brighter future, given the effects of the Great Depression. Lacking bowsprits but boasting big, beautiful rigs, the 10 J Class contenders were unlike anything ever seen before and performed spectacularly.
In 2000 the owners decided to preserve the history and integrity of the Js and formed the J Class Association.
Perhaps the most notable super-J in this regard is Lionheart, delivered in the summer of 2010. This was one of several alternate designs that had been created for Harold Vanderbilt, the railroad executive and skilled yachtsman, in preparation for the 1937 America’s Cup. She’s built entirely of aluminum, something the new J Class rules permits (the original Js were made of steel). Hall Spars, a well-known name in racing and cruising circles, built the spars in two pieces using carbon fiber. No other J is available for charter, so imagine the attraction of spending a week aboard one of the most famous sailboat designs in the world. It’s a design element that Hoek has employed on other sailing yachts, notably Adele and Athos. The same reaction will no doubt take place when she enters her first race, and not just from onlookers on land. In racing sailor’s terms, the challenger did a “horizon job” on the defender, winning the best-of-three series easily, 2-0.
Only thing was, in the final months and weeks, the race’s location and starting date were up in the air, too, due to the legal proceedings. This included how he shifted from BMW ORACLE mast designer to wingsail engineer and an evolving role as “onboard designer” to keep an eye on the loads and tuning, and to help the sailors become more comfortable with the wingsail setup during practise sessions. At the same time, design chief Mike Drummond introduces the wing-sail concept to the team with an 18-foot A-Class cat, a singlehanded racing design rigged, in this case, with a wing sail. The “mast” designed to support this assemblage is essentially a carbon box structure that rotates on a hinge made of titanium, bronze, and stainless steel. Scott says, “If we hadn’t broken the rig, we’d have had to answer the question of which is faster.
Damage isn’t severe, and, with the wing unloaded, Brad is able to tear away some of the film, pull on the pin, and pop it back in place!
With other repairs completed, the wingsail is raised for the first time in Spain, three weeks before the Cup is to start. Sailing home without winches proves difficult, and then the unthinkable happens; a line breaks while lowering the wingsail and the trailing edge crashes down on the sea wall. After 20 minutes, they have a solution and cut pre-fabricated carbon plates to bolt into place to support the damaged structure. These boats need very little wind to race, but on this day a steady area of breeze can’t be found for a course that must go 20 miles upwind and then 20 miles back down. Gradually, however, USA closes and just before the first mark of the 39-mile triangle course, the trimaran takes the lead. The flight envelope of the prototype is continuously defined and validated on a 3D flight simulator developed specifically for this carbon bird, which represents the new generation of extreme sailing. This unique project was created by a team of sailing buffs, engineers, technicians and aircraft manufacturers. The storm formed when cold Arctic air pushed south from Canada while moist air streamed north from the Gulf of the Mexico. However, due to the increased mobility of reduced arsenic species, often the toxicity of arsenic increases as the redox state decreases.
Another click might obliterate these same contents and bring civilization to an end: an overwhelming argument, if one is needed, for physical books in the digital age.
She was also intended for both racing and chartering, so modern-day classification and safety regulations came into play. When racing, such as was needed this summer in the historic J Class Regattas in the Solent, Rainbow carries a crew of 25 to 28.
Dykstra & Partners collaborated with deVosdeVries design to outfit Rainbow accordingly.
While she didn’t end up winning either race, Rainbow did prove her mettle with competitive times. Their names are famous to this day: Enterprise, Yankee, Velsheda, Endeavour, Rainbow, and Ranger, just to name a few. Their passion inspired a few more knowledgeable yacht owners to begin commissioning replica racers—specifically, “super Js,” as they’re commonly called, bearing the maximum waterline length permitted under the J Class rules.
One day in 2006, an experienced yacht owner asked Andre Hoek, the head of Hoek Design, which J Class yacht he’d want if he were to commission one for his own use. Her builder, Claasen Jachtbouw, had a good working relationship with Hoek, having constructed 16 of his projects previously. Still, because of the expanse of deck space, guests won’t feel confined when Lionheart is port-hopping around her base in the south of France or offshore in a good breeze. As much as they may not want to admit it, her competitors could get a good, long look as she passes them on the racecourse. Scott is aboard, as he is most days now until the Cup starts: “We thought we’d go really slow,” he says, but soon Skipper James Spithill has the boat doing figure eights at 20 knots around the narrow harbor and asks, “Can we just fly the centre hull?” “Now’s as good a time as any,” Scott replies. The extra element is essentially unsupported by the primary shroud system; Scott spends much of the day looking up. James Spithill later calls this a “defining moment of the campaign,” because it gave the crew critical practice time handling the gennakers.
By the time the boats have sailed ten miles, however, the trimaran has sailed right past the catamaran and doesn’t look back.
And, perhaps most notably of all, Rainbow features a diesel-electric propulsion system devised by HJB and WhisperPower, a Holland-based developer and manufacturer of hybrid systems for yachts and commercial vessels.
As a result, the past several years have seen these authentically reproduced beauties compete in the Superyacht Cup and other megayacht regattas, even against one another. Hoek and his team analyzed all of the performance data of the original Js, including the never-built ones, and of the new yachts, narrowing it down to five. In addition, there’s a removable inner forestay employing a manual furler for the staysail, for cruising with a Yankee staysail setup.
Furnishings are similar: nothing fussy or overstuffed, whether in the three guest staterooms or four crew cabins.
It has an aerodynamic fairing in front (the “nose”), a primary wing element behind it, and eight adjustable flaps, aft of the main element. Scott is following close behind in the team’s tender, and USA is going so fast he worries that a furled sailed could get loose (in what amounts to 35 knots of apparent wind aboard the boat) and break a control arm during a sail change, but the crew handles the sails perfectly. Those five were further analyzed, with Ranger F, designed by Starling Burgess and Sparkman & Stephens for Vanderbilt’s syndicate, emerging as the best overall performer.
Lines from the flaps lead around individual control arms, then down to a master-control system about 10 feet above the deck. By the end of February 1, the storm was a sprawling comma that extended from the Midwest to New England.
