I am excited to introduce this original project we started in September 2017. Let’s talk about sailing and more specifically about the FINN. FINN is a single-handed dinghy boat used in Olympic Games since 1956.
On such a boat, many parts of the geometry (hull, rudder, daggerboard and boom) are strictly limited by the rules of the FINN class. However, the mast and the sail are open for shape and material optimization. Both are propulsive and contribute to the speed of the boat.
At Dassault-Systèmes, we launched an original project in September of 2017 with the FFV (French National Sailing team) with Jonathan Lobert – Sailor, HEOL Composites (mast builder), and the WB-Sails company (Sailmaker).
