Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE BALLAST BULB FOR A SAILING VESSEL
(FR) SAC DE LEST RÉGLABLE POUR UN VOILIER
Abstract:
(EN) A sailing vessel is disclosed which comprises a hull, a keel depending from the hull and a mast. A ballast bulb (140) is provided at the lower end of the keel (120). A first control mechanism is provided for rotating the ballast bulb (140) about a transverse axis (710) to change the angle of attack of the bulb. A second control mechanism is provided for rotating the bulb about a longitudinal axis of the vessel.
(FR) L'invention concerne un voilier comprenant une coque, une quille dépendant de la coque et un mât. Un sac de lest est disposé au niveau de l'extrémité inférieure de la quille. Un premier mécanisme de commande est fourni pour faire tourner le sac de lest autour d'un axe transversal pour modifier l'angle d'attaque du sac. Un second mécanisme de commande est fourni pour faire tourner le sac autour d'un axe longitudinal du navire.
