The anchor riding sail
How many hours have you spend on your sailing boat that swing at wind in an not comfortable and not safety way?
From the USA the solution to stabilise your yacht swinging: produced by Banner Bay (but now made in France under royalties) we introduce to Europe the fabulous FinDelta anchor riding sail.
- Very effective.
- Stable delta shape.
- Will fit most boats.
- Quiet, does not luff.
- Stows in small space.
- Easy to set
Available on 4 sizes FinDelta is an equipment that you may have on board.
Our FinDelta anchor riding sail has an airfoil fin at the leading edge.
As soon as the boat swings even a few degrees the fin cuts off the air flow on one side and forces it to the other. A strong correcting force is initiated immediately.
The FinDelta anchor riding sail has a forward fin and two delta-shaped wings that combine to canter your boat at all times.
As soon as a boat swings even a few degrees the fin cuts off the airflow on one side and forces it to the windward wing. A strong correcting force is initiated immediately and the boat is gently returned to alignment. A patent has been granted for this advanced design.
To 9.7 m / 32 feet
From 9.8 to 14 m / from 33 to 46 feet
From 14,1 to 18,3 m / from 47 to 60 feet
From 18,5 to22 m / from 61 to 72 feet
Analysis sponsored by the NASA-funded Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) and conducted by University of Central Florida Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering Department has verified that this new design is up to 26 percent more effective at realigning the boat especially in those critical moments early in the swing. The fluid dynamics analysis image shows how at only a 5-degree angle of attack the sail channels air to the out-stretched wing on one side while cutting it off entirely to the other
