Over the past years a considerable extension has been given to the Delft Systematic Yacht Hull Series (DSYHS) The DSYHS data set now contains information about both the bare hull and appended hull resistance in the upright and the heeled condition, the resistance increase due to the longitudinal trimming moment of the sails, the side force production and induced resistance due to side force at various combinations of forward speeds, leeway angles and heeling angles. New formulations for the relevant hydrodynamic forces as function of the hull geometry parameters have been derived to be able to deal with a larger variety of yacht hull shapes and appendage designs. During the past two years some results of this research have already been published. In the present paper an almost complete picture of the relevant expressions which may be used in a Velocity Prediction Program (VPP) will be presented.
