Transcript: If the sailor wants to travel in the same direction as the wind, then all he or she has to do is hold the sail perpendicular to the wind and let the boat be pushed from behind. The Jackson Yacht Club (JYC) is looking to build a brand new type of vessel that can harness the power of wind. RESEARCH STEP 1: STATE THE PROBLEM The parts of my boat that went right was the design of the sail and hull. The parts that went wrong was my keels/rudder.My fastest time was 2.93(first trial) and then my times got worse after that. If I did this project again, I would keep my sail and hull design, but try a different kind of keel and form of weight. STEP 4: BUILD THE ITEM Wind has to be moving against the boat at an angle of at least 40 degrees for most vessels. Angling too sharply into the wind causes the forces on the boat to become unbalanced, and moves the boat sideways in the water. STEP 3: SELECT A SOLUTION STEP 2: GENERATE IDEAS Dimensions - length:6.5 inches - width: 5.5 inches - height: 7.5 inches On a sailboat, wind blowing against the boat at an angle inflates the sail, and it forms a similar foil shape, creating a difference in pressure that pushes the sail perpendicular to the wind direction. STEP 5: EVALUATE sail needs to overcome resistance force of the water, or drag Boat Times: 1. 2.93 secs 2. 10.99 secs 3. 8.87 secs STEP 6: PRESENT RESULTS hydrofoil, high performance boats, power catamaran, rigid inflatable are known for speed buoyancy must be greater than the weight of the boat Boating Challenge
