Yacht Racing Design
Dr.-Ing. Rodrigo Azcueta has been at the core of simulation based America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race design campaigns for 15 years, always pushing the boundaries. Our designs and engineering solutions have helped three sailing teams win the famous Around-the-World Volvo Ocean Race: ABN Amro in 2005/06, Ericsson Racing Team in 2008/09 and Groupama Sailing Team in 2011/12. We have been involved in 4 America’s Cup Campaigns: the 32nd with BMW Oracle Racing, the 33rd with Team Origin, the 34th with Artemis Racing, the 35th with Land Rover BAR.
After our successful involvement in the design of the foils of the previous HUGO BOSS, without doubt the fastest boat in the fleet during Vendee Globe 2016-2017, we were proudly commissioned again by Alex Thomson Racing to assist in the design of the new foil system for the recently launched, next generation IMOCA Open60 HUGO BOSS.
