The mission for the sail-training/educational/time-share brigantine Freedom’s
Wind is slightly unusual: the crew will be aboard for a semester at
a time, studying for their GED from one of the professional crew/educators,
in addition to their sail-training activities. The passengers (the
funding source) will be time-share holders, aboard for a week at a time.
Since they’re technically part-owners, the only certificate required here
is “R,” for the crew sail-training. In the meantime, this rather
disparate combination of vessel uses presented me with a rather interesting
design challenge. The first of the drawings below is my development
of the sail plan and the outboard profile based on Prof. Gillmer's first
sketches. The second drawing is my design for the decks and accommodations
layout. Our clients are very pleased with the result. The project
is presently on hold pending funding.
