Next gen mast and sail systems

Bret Perry from Advanced Wing Systems will give a free talk on Wednesday 23 October about new soft wing technology.

Drawing on his experience with America’s Cup and Farr, he will break down the myths and misconceptions about soft wings and explain why they are the perfect alternative for racing and cruising alike.

Over the past five years Bret has been primarily focused on the R & D of the Advanced Wing Systems soft wing – the SRW. He will bring the K8 Sports boat (pictured above) to the Squadron to give you a close look at the system, and if the wind allows, hoist the SRW in the dock. Please make your way down to the Pond from 5pm to examine this fascinating new technology. Do book a table for dinner afterwards.
