Sail system

De Valk has wings with the Dutch sail system. The miller can use four sails, but he depends on the wind. When the wind is too strong he has to reef. That means that the miller has to furl up a part of the sails. After the reefing the wings can not reach the speed they had before. 


Technical specification:

  • Dutch sail system 
  • Length of the wings: 22,20 meters
