Title (EN) A SAILING BOAT
(FR) VOILIER
Abstract:
(EN) A lightweight sailing boat (1) has buoyant means (5) provided at opposite sides of the boat to engage the water (3) upon heeling of the boat beyond a determined angle. The buoyant means (5) are coupled to the boat by a lost motion coupling allowing the buoyant means (5) to move with respect to the boat (1) to allow the boat to heel beyond said determined angle before the buoyant means starts to exert a significant righting force on the boat (1). When moved to an alternative configuration the buoyant means enter the water and give the boat (1) a trimaran configuration.
(FR) Voilier léger (1) muni sur ses flancs opposés de flotteurs (5) qui ont prise sur l'eau (3) lorsque le bateau gîte au-delà d'un angle donné. Ces flotteurs (5) sont reliés au bateau par un coupleur à mouvement à vide qui leur permet de se déplacer par rapport au bateau (1) de manière à le laisser s'incliner au-delà dudit angle donné avant qu'ils ne commencent à excercer sur lui une force de redressement sensible. Une fois déplacés pour former une autre configuration, les flotteurs pénètrent dans l'eau et donnent au voilier une forme de trimaran.
