Rave V Designer Larry Knauer
WindRider has teamed up with a veteran of the Aerospace Industry to develop the RAVE V. Larry Knauer (shown with granddaughter), now residing in Sandusky, Ohio, has joined WindRider International to oversee design and construction of the RAVE V.
Larry brings 40 years of professional experience in aerospace engineering most recently with Lockheed Martin as Director of Propulsion Subsystems in Colorado, and previously with Pratt and Whitney. His expertise in overseeing development of new technologies, managing design, procurement of complex parts or materials and executing high quality production will help establish the RAVE V as a leader within the hydrofoil sailing market.
Larry has a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Master degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is an accomplished multihull sailor and licensed glider pilot.

Larry Knauer, designer and test pilot intentionally chose a light wind day - about 6 knots - in order to test the foil/rudder steering, A-frame sail plan and overall get an initial "feel" for the boat. Because of its design, the RAVE V could be paddled out of the harbor - again, similar to the WR17 or WR16 WindRider models.

Larry Knauer, Designer and RAVE V Director and I traveled to Lake Garda, Italy in early July to participate and learn. Larry presented the RAVE V design and the presentation is attached here.

WindRider has teamed up with Larry Knauer, a veteran of the Aerospace Industry, to develop the RAVE V.
"A foiling boat is not like a typical sailboat - once you're foiling, you're essentially flying on wings on the water. We needed to make it as stable as non-foiling boats even when it was up in the air, so there was a lot of consideration going into the foil design, sails, forces, and load factors coming into the sails and down to the foils," said Knauer.
...
Some minor technical issues with the articulation of the masts to the linking spar, and the observation that it would be preferable to present the leeward sail forward into the lead of the airflow (much like the upper wing of a biplane is staggered forward), led to Larry Knauer's excellent suggestion to replace the linking spar with an arch shaped spar.
...
Look for another post by Larry elaborating on the results of the analysis.

With Larry Knauer leading the design, WindRider has also recruited two students from the University of New Orleans School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering to work on the RAVE V project. These students are working on doing the finite load analyses, SolidWorks modeling and other aspects of the engineering side.
