Two Handed Transatlantic Race (Twostar) regatta 2012 winners, Vento di Sardegna, partnered by Automobili Lamborghini's carbon fiber competence
As the team's technological partner, Automobili Lamborghini used its composite materials expertise to design and build a canard completely in carbon fiber: a moving, bow-mounted centerboard that improves the boat's hydrodynamics and is essential when sailing close hauled (as close to the wind as possible) to maintain course and for better traveling upwind. The width of the canard is 50 cm and the length 3 m. It has been built as a unique piece with internal cores to improve torsional characteristics, so that the component can resist to a load of 3,500 kg despite a weight of only 29 kg."
