Sailing Yacht Design: a Guide for Boat Owners, Crew and Buyers

Автор: Kim Klaka

Длина: 210 стр.2 ч


Do you want to understand what makes a sailing yacht perform the way it does, but are sometimes baffled by the science?

What stops a yacht from capsizing?

How smooth should the antifouling paint be?

What is the best shape for a rudder?

How can I keep a boat safe during a storm at sea?

Are catamarans and monohulls really that different?

The answers can be found in the pages of this book. It explains things in ways that can be understood by the lay person, using the minimum amount of science. The book comprises 5 chapters, 40,000 words and 75 diagrams. The diagrams are simple line drawings that can be read easily on all e-platforms and screen sizes.

The author is a naval architect with more than 40 years' experience in yacht design. He holds a Masters degree and a PhD in sailing yacht performance, and was the director of a university marine research centre. He has sailed over 30,000 miles, including singlehanded offshore passages and world championships. In 2015 he was awarded the David Walters Memorial Medallion for services to yachting safety.
