Speaker Series presentation by Kame Richards: 3D Sails

Kame Richards is a sailmaker and sail designer at Pineapple Sails which he co-founded in 1973.

Pineapple Sails makes racing and cruising sails from their loft in Alameda, California. Kame is a popular and entertaining lecturer on all aspects of sailing but his talk at CYC will be a little different.

If you are curious about modern sail design you should not miss this presentation. Kame Richards will demonstrate how he uses sail design software to determine for example:

  • Will the sail fit the rig? (3-D model of the rig)
  • The optimal curves for the luff, foot and leech
  • How does sail cloth selection affect 3D shape?
  • How are gores, reefs and stripes laid out on the 3D model?

This should be a fascinating and informative evening with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

No host bar opens at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation begins at 7:00 p.m.

There is no charge however please RSVP
