Tall Ship Kruzenshtern in Aalborg.

After years of careful preparation, Europe’s largest free family festival took the Tall Ships fleet to Denmark and Norway in 2019…

The Tall Ships fleet were treated to a fantastic time in Aalborg, Denmark, where spectators braved some adverse weather conditions to step on board these fantastic ships and enjoy the largest fireworks display ever in Denmark. Race One to Fredrikstad, Norway, saw some exhilarating sailing across the fleet with close battles throughout the Classes.

The event continued with the Tall Ships fleet spending an action packed four days celebrating in Fredrikstad before setting off for a stunning cruise-in-company along the coast of Norway to Bergen. After this cruise along the Skagerrak and North Sea, the world famous Tall Ships visited the Norwegian port of Bergen.

There, once again they entertained hundreds of thousands of spectators before taking part in a nail-biting race back to Aarhus, Denmark. The Danish city pulled out all the stops in their preparations and centre stage was taken on site by a specially constructed 50 metre high ferris wheel that gave spectacular views of the fleet.

2014 TR-X

Slalom/Race sail

We are excited to present the 10th edition of our TR race sail series. The path to the TR-X has been one of progressive evolution, a few revolutions, meticulous attention to detail and relentless testing.

The result of these iterations is our fastest and most stable to date. For TR-X we addressed all aspects of performance including profile shaping, tension, new materials, panel layouts and mast performance improvement.

The TR-X combines the best features of last year’s monofilm and XT versions into one line that beats them both. By carefully examining the skin tension throughout the sail body we have located the stable and crisp feeling monofilm in the deepest profile and highest tension areas of the sail. Separated by a seam that follows the load line of the sail, we have built the leech and upper sail body out of our new lightweight metallized scrim laminate. The result is the loose, twisting portion of the sail is much lighter, quieter, and more efficient in the wind, breathing and responding perfectly with each gust while the profile area is locked solid and stable. On the water the combination simply provides a seamless feel of perfectly balanced power and endless speed and acceleration.

Luff curve and shaping have been refined along with mast improvements to provide a more solid and stable lower profile together with an incredibly efficient leech twist progression. Acceleration is more rapid but the sails also feel lighter in the hands with better balance in gusty conditions. Slightly more tension, especially in larger sizes helps the sails stay composed and stable. Sizing of larger sails has been adjusted based on Micah’s preferences and there are now new 7.7 and 9.3 sizes.

Of course the backbone to a high performance rig is the mast and we have made a great effort, working with our manufacturer to improve bend, consistency and durability. The new SRS Race 100K masts have a Kevlar outer layer in the lower section to protect against point loading and wear at the boom and cam areas.

This year the Team Race sail shines stronger than ever, masterfully forged into the ultimate race weapon.

  • Sail area 7 sq ft, 0.55 sq m.

    Overpowered at 145 mph, 235 km/h. In some 34 knots, 17 m/s of wind,

Design: Anders Ansar

The sailor is enclosed in the wing from head to below the hips. His legs are enclosed in separate streamlines not rigidly attached to the wing. Only one of these visible here.

We have measured 59 mph, 95 km/h, in a 13 knots, 6.5 m/s, breeze but we sail, much overpowered, in twice as strong winds, 26 knots, 13 m/s, with an estimated speed of 75 mph, 120 km/h.
With this wing overpowering should come around 110 mph, 170 km/h (square root of 2 = 1.44 times higher speed). Not twice as high because wind forces increase with the square of the speed.

A reefable design — top sections can be removed.

  • Has no aerodynamic drag from hulls/planks/stays/sailor/cockpit/wheels/runners etc. The only aerodynamic drag is from the wing itself which is unavoidable.
    The Greenbird wing alone has the ability to sail some 60 times faster than the wind. That means it has e.g. 10 lb of drag when creating 600 lb of force. But when all the other drags are added it can sail only some four times faster than the wind. The other drags amount to some 140 lb! With a [stand inside] wing only you get rid of most of these — except wheel, runner, ski or surfboard drag.
  • Also when it comes to the drag of the sailing surface it is minimum when sailed on ice. Wheels, hydrofoils, boards, hulls etc. create much larger drag.
  • A wing skate sailor normally supports his weight on one skate only. To sail a desired course and steer the sailor trims the wing backwards/forward until in equilibrium. This eliminates the drag of an unbalanced craft. The Greenbird yacht e.g. most probably creates drag because the sail force tries to make the yacht ‘bear away’ or ‘head up wind’ which has to be resisted with steering which causes drag.

Can’t be enlarged
A wing sailor sailing at top speed in a strong wind. He leans to windward to balance the force of the wind. Speed is some 120 km/h, 75 mph.

Think small and make it on a budget! Material for a wing starts from somewhere around US$ 500. You can build it in your drawing room. Richard built his craft in Hong Kong. He needs a ship/plane/trailer to move it around.

When I raced my wing in the USA (built in my drawing room) I took it, disassembled, from Europe, as checked luggage on the plane, the long bits masquerading as skies. I assembled it in Red Bank , at the North Shrewsbury Ice Boat & Yacht Club , if I remember right.
Then I beat the E-skeeters, see: Ice Wing beats the large ice boats in the USA. Wins One-of-a-Kind race.

Think small and don’t run out of resources. WindCat

In 1994 I set about designing a land yacht capable of exceeding 100mph & setting a new world speed record.
Design focused on ultra-low drag, light weight, & high power. Theoretical projections were calculated. Control of direction & power were critical.
A radio-controlled model was created to verify the theory. It was fast, stable, & shockingly controllable.
A full-sized, 4-wheeled steel chassis, rack & pinion steering, adjustable height/rate suspension, 2 fully enclosed cockpits, & hydraulic brakes was created. A system was produced to control the fully rigid sails via the all-flying tailplane.

Runway tests were conducted at East Kirkby Airfield to establish controllability.
Two rigid sails & individually moulded seats were to be added to complete the craft, and Nevada was to be the next testing arena. This needed a budget that took the project out of the range of a working family man managing a project with 10 volunteers.

  • Forming the hull and the cockpit.
  • In there are the pedals for the steering of the front wheel.
  • No need for hull and cockpit. You just stay in the wing — which you need anyhow.
  • You steer the wing with your feet, skates.

  • The chain drive for the sheeting, adjustment of angle, for the wing. The pilot turns a wheel in front of him.
  • And the support for the wing.
  • You adjust the angle of the wing by just turning you body.
  • The wing is supported on your body by a pair of shoulder straps.

Designing land and ice sail crafts for Record Speeds — read before you build!

Very informative reading if you are interested in land and ice record speed sailing. Excerpts.

«Experience by other land sailors had shown that the potential benefits of laminar sections are not easily realized given the amount of vibration in the yacht. » The project has been a proper amateur effort without the distraction of seeking sponsorship. The overall material cost of the two yachts was about $6,000. «It took 4 years of trials and modifications to get the yacht and pilots dialed in.» «At speed in the Duck this might result in a high-speed forward cartwheel. This was not something we wanted to experience.» «At 70+ in the overpowered yacht the warm thoughts of success that filled my head during the design and building phase were replaced with all the ways things could come to a bad end. Bob said it best as he climbed out of the yacht after an early run: “I am sure this thing will go faster, I am just not sure it will be with me in it”. «The Ghinn brothers in England have been working on a craft they call WindCat. It is a two hulled affair with a wing on each hull. They have been held back by financial constraints.» Windjet: «Bill Green built the yacht out of the usual composite materials for a reputed cost of over $100,000. It is an impressive looking machine and there is no duct tape in evidence in any of the pictures on their extensive website.»
