“Technical Innovations in Hydrofoiling:

Breakthroughs in Crafting ‘The Boat That Flies’”

2 Speakers:  Bora Gulari & Ricardo Bencatel

   Olympian & CEO; AND Technical Director --- Both of FloHy, Ltd.

 

While the math & science of hydrofoils have been well-understood for more than a century --- the early 2000s, brought game-changing breakthroughs in materials design and dynamical control systems that caught up with the math & science --- removing limits and altering America’s Cup racing forever!  Our two sailor-engineer speakers’ deep involvement with the sport and the team, position them well to discuss these transformations, along with:  the advent of foiling in sailing; similarities and distinctions between flight and foiling; surface-piercing vs. fully-submerged foils; various sailing classes, e.g., Moths & Nacra 17; and foiling stabilization & the evolution of computational control mechanisms.  There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions submitted in advance to:  propellers@princetonaaa.org.

 

ZOOM LINK will be sent to the first 300 who register by October 11th:   propellers.princetonaaa.org
