Last week the Hydro/Structures team, lead by Tobi Laux, had an in-depth meeting about the design of the heavy-weight boat. Several concept designs were analysed and pros and cons were considered. The team is now ready to test another concept in the brand new towing tank based on Boldrewood Innovation Campus. Testing on Wednesday. We will keep you posted on the outcome.
We are very excited about our up-coming Tech Talk #1 taking place on Thursday. We are expecting a wide range of experts from academics to America’s Cup designers, naval architects and other potential partners. The talk's primary aim is to improve our concept designs before we undertake further R&D work and move on to the construction phase.
