He has not forgotten his hydrogenerators, like almost all his competitors !
Good wind to you Yannick !
Great race !
Watt&Sea took part in towing tank tests of CRUISING hydrogenerator for a resarch project lead by Ecole Centrale de Nantes / LHEEA (FR)
The goal of the tests was to measure at the same time the ouput power versus the drag for different speeds and for several propellers models.
The towing tank facility of LHHEA is able to run up to 8 m/s (~16 knots ) and is equipped for drag measurments in ideal conditions.
