Hello from Portugal

Hi everyone!

I’m new to rc sailing.

My dream is to create an autonomous sailboat to cross the Atlantic! But for the moment I’ll be focusing on semi-autonomous rc sailboats. That is, directly controlling some aspects and experimenting with micro-controllers to take care of the rest.
For example, RC the rudder but have a canting keel being controlled by a micro-controller with a 3axis-accelerometer.

I’ll keep you updated on my project and I hope that you will be able to help me in the parts I am less proficient like hydrodynamics and design.

Hope to be able to fit in this forum with this slightly esoteric project.

Best Regards,
