About this project

Flying on the Water

Following the success of Oracle Team with their Sailing Wing in 2010, the latest America's Cup (2013) rule required all teams to race with a rigid Sailing Wing. This is where NTPT joined the game and few teams worked with this lightweight material to realize their wings.

In this project, I have been involved in the design and production of the NTPT preforms used for wings structures. Working closely with the team designers, we have used all the potential of this technology to save weight and increase the performance.
