Title
(EN) SAIL-WING AND CONTROLS FOR A SAIL CRAFT
(FR) VOILE ET AILE COMBINEES, AINSI QUE COMMANDES POUR UNE EMBARCATION A VOILE
Abstract
(EN)
An amphibious sail craft with a sail-wing system includes a rotatably mounted mast (20), a rotatable boom (30) pivotally mounted to the mast, and a sail-wing (60) mounted to the boom and rotatable with the boom about horizontal and vertical axes for varying the attitude of the sail-wing among sail positions or wing positions or combinations thereof. Mechanism to turn the mast and to rotate and tilt the boom to thereby control the attitude of the sail-wing includes: sheets (55, 56) to rotate the boom about its axis; a control wheel (52) to selectively pull one or the other of the sheets, or to pull them both to control the rearward tilt of the boom; and a control column (40) and reaction gear (46) to turn the mast away from the movement of the control column. Steering mechanism (48, 49) through the control column is movable laterally with the operator. An operator platform (12) on the hull includes a diametrically opposed seat and foot rail system (13, 14) enhancing the pilot's leverage and control movements.
(FR)
Une embarcation à voile amphibie avec un système de voile et d'aile combinées comprend un mât (20) monté rotatif, une bôme rotative (30) montée pivotante sur le mât, et une voile-aile (60) montée sur la bôme et rotative avec cette dernière autour d'axes horizontal et vertical pour faire varier l'attitude de la voile-aile parmi les positions de voile ou les positions d'aile ou des combinaisons de celles-ci. Un mécanisme pour faire tourner le mât et pour faire tourner et incliner la bôme pour ainsi commander l'attitude de la voile-aile comporte : des écoutes (55, 56) pour faire tourner la bôme autour de son axe; un volant de commande (52) pour tirer sélectivement l'une ou l'autre de ces écoutes, ou bien pour les tirer toutes les deux en vue de commander l'inclinaison vers l'arrière de la bôme; et un levier de commande (40) ainsi qu'un mécanisme à réaction (46) pour faire tourner le mât à l'opposé du mouvement du levier de commande. Un gouvernail (48, 49) traversant le levier de commande est mobile latéralement avec l'utilisateur. Un plancher (12) sur la coque, réservé à l'utilisateur, comprend un système de siège et de rail de pied (13, 14) diamétralement opposés permettant d'améliorer l'effet de levier et les mouvements de commande exercés par le pilote.
