  Bernard Smith's book, The Knot Sailboat, sketched out a radical sailing concept: Wind across an airfoil provided lift (F a) laterally opposed by a hydrofoil (F h). The resultant force creates forward motion. Forces of wind and water propel traditional sailboats, by: 1. C[pounds sterling]ICOve always loved sailing fast. It was while I was in the Whitsundays that I read a book Co The Knot Sailboat Co and that changed everything for me. The book was written by an American rocket scientist, Bernard Smith, who had some remarkable theories on high-speed sailboat design which I could relate to. .

With such a clever idea, it's only appropriate to note that Giles says the "inspiration for this invention was that remarkable book, "The 40 Knot Sailboat" by Bernard Smith." Giles is refining the concept using a series of models of increasing size and sophistication - he is now working with a 48" RC multihull.

InSmith published The knot Sailboat, in which he set out an innovative sailboat design inspired by the traditional proa sailed by the peoples of the Pacific Ocean.

Smith's designs revolved around the concept of the "aerohydrofoil," where the boat's keel and sail are separated from each other.

The catalyst for the SailRocket project was the book The knot Sailboat written in by American rocket scientist and yacht design visionary Bernard Smith. At a time when yachts still had.

A proa, from the little I know, is a hull with an outrigger and a sail. There are jillions of variants, but that'll do. It's not a catamaranit tends to be faster than a cat. These are the boats used to go for the "40 Knot Sailboat" super speed records.

This design has been considered by others as well, such as the Monomaran designs by "The 40 knot Sailboat" author Bernard Smith, and these designs been called 3-point proas by some, a reference to the 3 point hulls used in hydroplanes.

A previous record holding design, the Crossbow II, owned by Timothy Colman was a proa/catamaran hybrid.Amongst all this, Bernard’s seminal book, “The knot sailboat” was published in It was a simple and easy to read book that outlined Bernard’s farsighted concepts for tackling the issues of high speed sailing.
