Tips & Tech

To get the best performance from your BreezeWizard,

1) Keep the base of the cone as close to the hatch as possible, without it touching. Allowing free rotation.
2) Ensure that the spokes are level when not under load.

The BreezeWizard structure is specifically designed to clamp between the deck and cabin, therefore the hatch screens will not operate while the BreezeWizard is in situ.

The Theory

When there is no wind, your BreezeWizard’s weight sits on the top of the point bearing. With very little friction, it has an ease of rotation and is at its most sensitive.

Ensure that the base of the cone is as close to the deck as possible without touching it. This will reduce air leakage.

The spokes should be adjusted so that they are level. Use the clamping screw (DO NOT over tighten!!)

As the wind picks up, your BeezeWizard will start to inflate and the ensuing downdraft will lift the BreezeWizard - equal and opposite reaction. (Remember Sir Isaac !) The outer parts of the spokes will lift but the bottom bearing/clamping screw will hold down the BreezeWizard.

This bellying of the BreezeWizard increases the load/friction on the bearings.

Now here is the neat bit, the extra wind speed gives the tail fin equal power to overcome the extra friction and remain in directional control.

Enjoy your dancing BreezeWizard!
