With the increasing demands for Superyacht racing and the latest improvements on materials for sails and rigging, it has become even more important to calculate accurate loads on running and standing rigging. This determines the size of the deck equipment and the construction of the yacht. Hoek Design uses a comprehensive software program, Rig Edge, to calculate the aerodynamic and structural loads on sails and rigging. It enables us to have a thorough analysis of various sail configurations and the resulting loads to get to the best performing rig. Hoek Design works closely together with the top mast builders and sail makers in the world to provide the best solution for the yachts to improve on performance, sail handling and safety on board. With vast experience of hands-on yacht racing in most of the superyacht regattas, combined with our sophisticated software programs, we are able to give confident input in the rig design.
