Paper Number: SNAME-CSYS-2001-010
... An Excel Velocity Prediction Program has been developed to allow for rapid evaluation of yacht performance at the initial design stage. The required input consists of only the basic hull and sail dimensions. Empirical equations, based on these basic dimensions, are used for initial estimates...

... of these simulations would then be used to build full scale boats which would be tested. The results of the full scale trials would be used to adjust the simulation techniques to fine tune the final design. The data from the model tests were used to develop the input parameters for a Velocity Prediction Program (VPP...

... Velocity Prediction Programs used for sailboat hull, sail, and keel sizing trades, have found an important place in the designer's toolbox. Sail designers now recognize the benefits of applying aerodynamic panel methods. In addition, the 1983 and 1987 America's Cup competitions have drawn...
