Appendages optimisation

Through the use of biomimicry and the study of humpback whale flippers, we have been able to improve rudder stall characteristics. This is potentially a common issue on monohulls with rudder ventilation and sudden loss of lift.

Several solutions do exist, the first one is obviously changing the whole rudder to a better designed one; but more cost effective solutions exist. Our office has developed a retro-fit possibility on existing rudders to delay stall by up to 40%. Contact us for further information.
