Dick Tillberg, the founder of the Museum of Modern Skate
in front of the museum which is located in a barn.
The museum contains four stand inside wing skate sails and one traditional skate sail. It is as far as I know the first skate sailing museum in Sweden.
This was the typical construction of the first wing sails.
This was originally a some 2.5 meter tall wing. It was then modified to a cabriolet for high wind sailing.
The museum have a non modified wing like the one pictured just above.
This was a serious try to make a high performance wing: Large stiff area at the front and large sail area. It never won a Swedish Championship.
On the right is "El Gigante" a combination of a cabriolet sail and another wing. Good light wind performance.
On the left is a speed wing, designed for the 160 km/h range, not yet part of the museums collection.
Mr. Tillberg have made several attempts to make low energy water vehicles. In the museum is special engine mount for a Tornado catamaran. It mount a small diesel at the forward crossbeam. Fuel consumption is .06 liter per nautical mile according to Mr. Tillberg.
The museum also have some old outboard engines: Penta U 21, Archimedes B 22.
The museum is located in the county Vaermland 400 km, 260 miles, west of the Swedish capital Stockholm.
The museum can be visited on request. Contact Dick Tillberg.
