... was the Olympic dinghy class called the Laser. It was the author’s understanding that at that time, no work has been completed in the area of velocity prediction for this type of sailboat. Thus, the fundamental goal of this thesis was to develop a velocity prediction program specific to the Laser. In order...

... In velocity prediction programs for yachts the problem of modelling sail forces is greatly complicated by the fact that the sail shapes are not fixed. For a given sail plan, alterations in sail trim produce a wide range of combinations of lift, drag and heeling moment. While the original...

... and tacking maneuverability of the boat. The sailing state parameters at the steady condition were compared with the results of the velocity prediction program, and the results were in good agreement. The motion of the boat in waves was assessed in conjunction with wave measurements using a throw-in type...
