Underway sailing

After a few minor adjustments to the foremast, we can now use a sail.

When the wind is favorable we hoist the sail, so we can make use of free energy, safe fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.

We are currently testing to find out the amount of energy that we are saving wen using the sail.

The Thorq-meter on the propellershaft, and the fuel use monitor installed earlier by VAF electronics are very useful to help calculate the savings.
