Booms for sailing yachts are a challenge for every engineer. The booms are typically designed to withstand gigantic loads. From afar, it seems that these booms have an easy job of sustaining such strains. The use of composite material combined with the correct designs and calculations offer an elegant solution here.

Why are composites used here?

High strength
In general, fibre reinforced plastics outperform metals (e.g. steel and aluminium) in strength.
