|Extra sail carrying power -
The extra power generated by the ability to cant the keel bulb to windward eliminates the need for a fourth (or fifth) crewmember on the rail. The complete crew is occupied with actively sailing the boat without a need for extra people on the rail for weight only useful whilst sailing upwind. The keel built from high tensile steel guarantees a fast and safe ride. The keel can be raised using a tripod to make transport and storage very easy.
Leeway reduction - Single canard
To reduce the leeway while the keel is canted a single canard is added. This foil generates the side-force necessary to keep the boat sailing upwind with a good Velocity Made Good (VMG). This single canard on the centerline is removable for downwind courses to reduced drag and is easily stored against the cockpit sides using specially designed fittings. The canard is designed using the latest foil analysis software and with carbon reinforcements resulting in an extremely high performance and lightweight foil.
Aerodynamic optimization - Rotating wing-mast
The carbon rotating wing-mast is a custom engineered mast tube equipped with synthetic (P.B.O.-fiber) stays. A lot of time has been spent at the aerodynamic optimization between the mast and the sails, creating a rig that acts as a complete unit. The mast is not merely a pole on which to hoist your sails, but a trimming instrument and, aerodynamically-speaking, a part of the airflow, actually BECOMING a part of the sail plan!
|Full control - Twin rudders
The CQ-6 is equipped with two rudders for optimum control of this powerful boat at various speeds. The rudders are carbon reinforced for optimum weight and minimum flex.
