moving forward...

The main trick in SeaGlider is to create slightly different pitch in the wing/sails. As the wind thus tries to topple this (a bit like the wind acting upon a free-spinning propeller), the spin in counteracted by the centreboard, the rudder and the flaps — transforming it into a forward momentum and general lifting of the craft with a significant increase in apparent wind. High precision is needed to maintain balance. This is achieved by computerised adjustments of flaps, pitch and rudder with minimum pitching and rolling of the craft, also counteracting the variable speeds of the wind. The various controls help maintain an altitude of about 5 metres above the sea surface when flat and 10 metres in waves up to 5 metres in depth, while travelling at an average cruising speed between 60 to 120 knots — only using the wind as a propellant. The craft would have to travel by "tacking" and "gybing", in order to maintain a differential suction on the wing/sail system in regard to the direction of the wind. 

 

It should work.

SEAGLIDE — a novella by Gus Leonisky...

 

"Good morning, this is Frank Marxzy, your captain speaking. 

 

Welcome aboard SeaGlider Ventus Spirituali. In a moment we will depart on our journey to New York, 3,200 nautical miles away. As you know, we cannot travel in a straight line and we will be mostly tacking. We will travel around 4,300 miles. The trip takes on average one day and 21 hours. Due to timezone differences we should be arriving in New York in time for dinner at Daniel tomorrow night. Bookings have been made on behalf of the company and transport has been arranged to your respective place of stay. 

 

Contrarily to what is claimed on the glossy brochure in regard to only using wind power, this craft is also equipped with a small array of high efficiency perovskite solar panels complementing our energy supplies, also used to motor-along at 50 knots till we reach the open sea. Please remain seated and make sure your seat-belt is fastened until we achieve cruising speed. Thank you."

 

...

 

"Welcome aboard. This is your head steward, Joseph Taphianisky… Just call me Joe. We are now cruising at 123 knots. The weather is freshening a bit and we shall reach 175 knots in about half an hour. You would have noticed how smooth the craft is gliding, due to its quantum computerised stability monitoring despite the swell being about 3.5 metres. Whenever moving along corridors or standing up make sure you hold on to one of the special secure fittings — just in case... Lunch will be served in the panoramic view dinning room in about ten minutes or at your leisure... Please make your way there, unless you have ordered prior ensuite service. Your five star chef is Pierre Dupont. Thank you."

 

 

And so started the new adventure of Georg von Ludwig Philipp on his way to the Old New world. He’d been there many times before on business trips, flying those awful jets that would get you there in six hours while destroying the planet with carbon dioxide. Then, one had to go through customs, immigration, pandemic quarantine inspections and bomb detection checks, and be robbed blind by a hire-car service in a traffic jam to nowhere. It took about 4 hours from his Frankfurt mansion till take-off at the airport 10 miles away — and about five hours in New York to his headquarters from landing at the new DonTrump AirTerminal 50 miles from the city. By now New York city was being cleaned up. Its carbon footprint had been reduced by 70 per cent — and the oil merchants and the coal barons were planning a revolution.

 

Retired, middle-aged and rich enough, Georg von Ludwig Philipp still enjoyed making a few deals, and chose to minimise his carbon footprint by using the SeaGlider. He had travelled directly from his home to Rotterdam in one of the fast e-copters of the SeaGlide company. Ticketing by the company made sure there were no bomb-artists, no spies and no lunatics, even rich, on board. The US authorities trusted the excellent screening of the passengers, speeding up the electronic checked transfers and providing red carpets when required. Travel by sea took more time than by air, but it was much faster though than in the days of the steamships — and at the beginnings and ends of trips... The ambiance on board was only first class and most of the other guests, despite being refined. possibly seen as snooty and ostentatious by a distant riffraff, were more than intelligent in their subjects of conversation. Physics, mathematics, politics, arts, the future and philosophy were the main subjects explored in unfathomable depths. They would indulge from time to time in games and sentimental journeys... 

 

As he was perusing the excellent menu, this is when Georg von Ludwig Philipp met his match — and this woman turned his brain into a monkey’s mush.

 

More to come… May be...
