Modern Lateen Sails

Lateen sails have always been fascinating, generating a great aura of mystery and history around them.
Unfortunately in recent years, this type of sail has been forgotten due to its low performances and difficulty to manoeuvre.



BUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF SOMEONE WOULD LIKE TO TRY REVIVING THIS TYPE OF SAILING ALL MAINTAINING ITS DESIRABILITY AND CHARME?



 

I decided to tackle this challenge by creating a hull that is symmetrical to the sail.
Although this peculiarity is not visible during low speeds, as soon as the boat acquire velocity and lift thank to its foils, the symmetry unvails like in a show. 


THIS EFFECT OF WONDER AND SURPRISE AIM TO ADD SPECTACULARITY TO THE ALREADY  ENGAGING SHAPE OF THE AURIC SAIL.
