Speeding Up the Design Curve: Farr 280 Sail Development

December 8, 2015

Synopsis

"Technology is democratic because it always reaches the end user," is a favorite saying of Joan Subirats, Quantum Sails’ head of technology in Barcelona. "It also applies very well to what we’re doing at Quantum, with the trickle-down of technology to all our customers."

For the development of class sails for the new Farr 280, Quantum’s technology team leveraged the knowledge and data gleaned from the Quantum Racing TP52 program to very quickly and efficiently design optimal sail shapes for the Farr 280.

This technical brief examines the sail development process and collaboration with Farr Yacht Design and Southern Spars.
