Default WING-DRIVE Cruiser.

Wing-Drive is a wind propulsion system. Wing Sails are a sailing system. Do you like to know the difference?

The Wing-Drive is the safe wind propulsion system for single handing Cruising.

The capsizing risk is eliminated. No sail to take down. Full control of the drive force in strong wind.

You can operate it from the inside of the boat and no physical effort is involved to adjust the wings.

Hola Robin.

Claro que hablo Español. Vivo en Mallorca donde todas las pruebas con mi Wing-Drive han sido realizadas con mucho éxito.

Good luck with your trip to Hawai.

Saludos

Kjell

Are you still on about this wing drive? How well does it do in stormy weather? Can it be reduced in size?

The Wing-Drive has been tested in stormy gusty wind with very good result. You can’t reduce the size of the wings you reduce the angle of incident. The wings are made for strong wind like aeroplane wings.

Hi

A friend filmed my ECOCAT some year ago and I have converted the film in a Video Clip. Here is possible to se how the WING-DRIVE works in light wind and in combination with motor. The use of Spinnaker in combination with a Wing Sail is unique.
