Built in Australia, she is destined to be the first ever modern ocean racing boat to be assembled in the Middle-East and will become part of a select group of the longest sailing trimarans ever built.

She will join the Oman Sail Racing Team fleet as the largest sailing boat to be based in Middle-East region and, along with Musandam (ex-B&Q), form the embryo of a fleet of ocean racing boats based in the Arabian Peninsula.

Wind Cowl

Wind Cowl.

A particularly interesting and challenging project. Working with Designer Nic Bailey, the requirement was to produce a non-powered method for eliminating the chlorine odour from a large house with an indoor pool area.

 

The solution utilises negative pressure created by the flow of the wind over the cowl. The cowl will spin to face the wind and due to the laws of fluid dynamics will draw air from the pool room. An internal cone with a sealing face can be manoeuvred to regulate or close the air flow.
