second International Conference on High Performance Yacht Design

Timed to coincide with the arrival of the Volvo Ocean Race fleet in New Zealand, the second international conference on high performance yacht design will be held in February 2006, and will showcase the latest developments in yacht research from around the globe. This conference will be a venue where naval architects, engineers, designers and researchers can present and hear papers on the current state of high performance yacht and power craft technology.

Advances in high performance yacht design are being driven by a range of factors, including development of new racing classes and demand for increased size and performance of racing and cruising craft. Radical design concepts such as innovative new hullforms, moving keels and masts and new approaches to sails and propulsion systems require innovative approaches to analysis, design and experimental verification.

Do you think I would be wrong if a few last minute discussions about canting kells might come along?
