Why do yachts have wings?

An aircraft wing – or aerofoil – creates lift by taking advantage of the pressure difference on each side plus forward thrust from jet engines. Using the same principle, a sailing yacht with a fixed ‘wingsail’ gains forward motion. The rigid shape means air travels faster over the back – or leeward – side.

Who invented the wing keel?

Australian boat designer Ben Lexcen was famous for inventing the winged keel on the winning yacht Australia II. But now marine architect Peter van Oossanen, who worked with Lexcen, says it was his team of Dutch designers who invented the upside down keel, and Lexcen played only a minor role.

How fast do hydrofoil boats go?

Then friction only acts on the small foils, not on the whole hull, which is why a 130-foot hydrofoiling sailboat can “fly” at over 50 knots. Powerboats have added friction from the propulsion system that has to remain in the water, but even then, large hydrofoiling ferries can exceed 45 knots.
