In the early 1980’s, brothers Malte and Klaus Simmer moved to Maui’s north shore to realize their windsurfing dreams. It didn’t take long for them to discover that the demands of sailing Maui’s north shore, especially Ho’okipa, were more than a match for the available sail designs. Malte and Klaus wanted something better. Necessity being the mother of invention, Simmer Style Sailmaking was born.

A wingsail is a novel form of marine propulsion, and provides significant advantages over traditional “soft” sailing rigs. Most modern sailing uses the “aerofoil” effect to create “lift” in the direction you want to sail. The wingsail, for a variety of technical reasons, does this more efficiently. Wingsail boats can also be set up so that sailing them is much simpler than a normal sailing boat.
