The design of a Wilke Wingmast as Ben Ainslie and many other top Finn helms have been using, is an evolution over the last three years. The key to the success was a analytical analysis performed by Sebastian Schmidt and DYNE Engineering, where FE-models and advanced structural composite calculation have been employed. Wilke followed this with the establishment of an entire manufacturing process capable of producing high performance carbon spars to very tight tolerances. Wilke's new dynamic mast-testing allowes them to even establish the dynamic behaviour of different masts and continuing development of their masts, to ensure that the top helmsmen continue to use them.
At Wilke Swiss Marine Composites we trust in pre-impregnated carbon from the Advanced Composites Group, one of the leading Prepreg manufacturers. A Finn mast, that posesses the exact bending, twisting and dynamic behaviour that an athlete requires is the result of a carefull selection of the Carbon fibre, the resin type and contet, as well as a sophisticated layup. The quality management at Wilke Swiss Marine Composites ensures that the strict tollerances in the manufacturing process are met.
Based on the experience of over 900 masts built to date and the feedback of European, World and Olympic champions Wilke are able to tailor a mast exactly to your need. You supply Suntouched with the fore and aft and sideways bend you wish to have, and we deliver the finshed, mast directly to you anywhere in the World. Of course we at Suntouched are able to advise and design the bend numbers that would best suit you.

Design and Development
The HIT wing mast has been developed continuously over the years together with Ceilidh Composite Technologies B.V. who are also known for their Europe and OK mast successes.

Manufactured in an aluminium mould with advanced pre-impregnated materials, our masts are proven performers on the international scene.
HIT Finn Masts
Design and Development
HIT masts are layed-up - layer for layer - with a combination of different stiffness carbon fibres.

While most of each mast is manufactured using industry standard T-700 grade fibres, the localised stiffeners can only perform as required by using a higher grade (M40J) fibre. Further strength is added by use of woven cloths which are orientated to reduce the influence on the stiffness of the mast.

The dynamic response of the mast is carefully controlled by the combined use of the fibres at specific points in the section. This results in being able to regulate the amount of twist in the mast while sailing.

All the masts are cured under identical conditions with an internal pressure bag system at 3,5 bar in the custom built oven set to 120 degrees C.
Construction and Materials
All HIT masts are supplied with bend to suit the helmsman. Weight, fitness and sailing experience are major issues when customizing the mast for speed and sail handling. You can either give us your bend preferences or we can advise on the mast that best will suit you.
Customisation
Hit Masts have an impressive record of results including many wins and placings in major regattas such as the Olympics, Finn Gold Cup and Europeans over the years.
