  • Quantum And Club Swan 36 Breaking New Ground




    On Monday, June 3, 2019, Quantum Sails powered the groundbreaking ClubSwan 36 for its official launch
    and first round of sea trials. Quantum Sails is proud to be involved in making this boat-of-firsts fly, and in
    helping Nautor's Swan disrupt the world of sailing with this new one-design class aimed at giving the
    amateur sailor access to extreme performance. Using Quantum’s iQ Technology® design tool, the
    Quantum Sails team worked closely with Nautor’s Swan and Juan-Kouyoumdjian to develop a
    high-performing rig and suite of sails fitting of the innovative, high-tech platform. The result of the
    collaboration spoke for itself as hull #01 ripped around the waters in Scarlino, Italy, with out-of-the-box
    sails that fit perfectly and worked harmoniously with the unique, versatile rig.






    “It is an honor to be part of such an exciting program from its inception,” says Ed Reynolds,
    president of Quantum Sails. “Quantum Sails is all about total performance and design.
    Our data-driven approach to sail design and desire to continually push boundaries and
    make sailing more accessible fit perfectly into the Nautor’s Swan philosophy on this project.
    With this new ClubSwan 36, you no longer need to be an America’s Cup level sailor to experience
    this level of extreme performance,” continues Reynolds.



    The foil-assisted ClubSwan 36 makes the fun and excitement of high-performance dinghy and
    keelboat racing accessible to a wide range of sailors. The innovative design boasts a flush deck,
    open cockpit and retractable bowsprit, chamfered bow, and transverse sliding C-foil.
    Above the deck, the Juan K Office designed carbon rig provides plenty of tuning opportunities
    while racing this innovative entry-level sports boat.





    “This truly is a sailor’s rig,” says Chris Williams, Quantum design lead on the ClubSwan 36 sails.
    “The carbon rig is unique. It has a lot of control and it’s very light. Sailors who enjoy the technical
    aspects of rig tune and sail control will get a lot out of this class, especially using the Quantum setup.
    We used our powerful iQ Technology design tools to develop a suite of sails with unprecedented shape
    without sacrificing the wide range of trimming capacity required with the limited sail inventory
    dictated by the class rule and the target sailors who will be using them.”



    In working closely with Nautor’s Swan and Juan-Kouyoumdjian, Quantum Sails found in these teams
    the same passion and commitment to performance, design, and technology. Additionally, Quantum Sails
    felt an aligned belief in the importance of helping to elevate every sailor’s performance to maximize the
    experience and meet their challenges. Quantum looks forward to continued collaboration with
    Nautor’s Swan and Juan Kouyoumdjian throughout the ClubSwan 36 sea trials as well as in the future.
