Re: Interesting Sailboats
I'm not really interested in wing sails on a boat of mine, although it is an interesting concept, being able to reef it and everything.
I like the OneSails, well, sails. Especially the ones with the taffetta coverings, giving them a golden colour. If I was a racing sort of chap, I would probably go for the uncovered, but that tech is really interesting, even for a tosser like me who just enjoys big weather and having fun in waves. As a concept I think they're on to something that will take the cruising and racing world with storm. I mean, it would be possible to make a lighter sail, yet stronger than most anything out there with their method. And who doesn't like to have less weight up on top, and to have them strong enough to withstand most anything (well, for a non-racer like myself, anyway)?
For others who might join in, I can categorically state that not only do I have no connection whatsoever with OneSails, I had never heard of them until PCP posted the above links.
