Yellow Pages Endeavour - Overview

TOP SPEED = 54 knots

Yellow Pages Endeavour (YPE) is a Lindsay Cunningham tri-pod design. YPE could loosely be described as a proa, because it sails only on starboard tack.It rides on three hulls or pods located at the ends of three wing-like arms. The vertical wing mast is mounted on the hub where the arms meet, and is stayed by wires. The craft has eight or nine foils under the pods - three on the forward pod, three on the aft, and two or three on the crew pod. The three forward foils rotate to steer the craft.
