...Malo Pocheau; Olivier Le Maître; Renaud Bañuls Static Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP) are standard tools in sailing yachts’ design and performance assessment. Predicting the maximal steady velocity of a yacht involves resolving constrained optimization problems. These problems have a prohibitive...

... performance prediction tools are always semi-empirical, leaving significant room for improvement. In this paper we first use unsupervised machine learning to analyse full-scale yacht performance data. The widely documented ORC VPP (ORC, 2015) and the commercial Windesign VPP are compared to the data across...
