Solo Sails Sailmakers 3D Logo

At Solo Sails we are always trying to keep one step ahead of the game, not only in terms of how we think, but also by utilizing the very latest in design and analysis software.

Presently, we are carrying out trials with CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software in collaboration with the Australian company ODS Engineering.

The following images are some of the study results we have been achieving with this cutting edge software. The results we are getting now help us to understand and maximize how our sails perform on the water.
