Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this proposed project is to study the "end plating" effects application to sail design. The goal of reducing aerodynamic drag forces and losses in drive force for the International A Class Catamaran. The specific design focus of the project is on overcoming the human interface challenges related to full length desksweeper sails and prevent the lift induced vortex from forming.
