How This Benefits North Sails Designers
When North Sails designers receive our accurate Membrain model from
RigCalc, it enables them to design sails on an ‘as built’, ‘docktuned’
rig, rather than a simplified version. This allows North Sails
designers to model more accurately the behaviour of the rig/sail
interaction to optimise sail designs.
How This Benefits the Yacht Owner
-Knowing exactly how the rig should be tuned at stepping as the optimal jack pressures are specified during design.
-Significantly reducing the amount of time needed to tune a rig during sea trials.
Both companies’ designers are mindful of the complete package – not
treating the rig and sails as independent components. Ultimately, it
means that designers from North Sails and Southern Spars can be
confident of the rig and sail package working together as modelled,
having used the most accurate simulation that exists.
