    Papers are invited on all topics relating to the design of high performance power and sailing yachts, including:

    - wind tunnel and towing tank testing
    - computational methods
    - hull and appendage design

    An exciting new development is that an agreement has been reached with SNAME (Chesapeake) and Ecole Navale (Innov’Sail) to provide a coordinated rolling 3 year programme of high quality yacht technical conferences.

    Abstracts are due 1st July and final papers are due 1st October. All papers are reviewed by an international technical panel. See www.hpyd.org.nz for more details.

    Abstract submission extended - From Dr. LePelley;

    "Dear colleagues,

    We have already had over 30 abstracts submitted on a wide range of topics.

    We recognise that this is a busy time for many so would like to extend the abstract submission deadline until Friday 18th July. After this date the technical committee will review all of the abstracts and communicate with authors.

    If there are other people you work with who have done something interesting please try to persuade them to submit an abstract!

    We look forward to seeing you all in March 2015.

    Please send abstracts to info@hpyd.org.nz. Final papers are due on 1st October.

    Kind regards,

    David Le Pelley
    HPYD5 Committee"

Additionally, there will be a welcoming function on the evening of 9th March to which you are all warmly invited.

    The venue will be central to the Stopover hub and the boats. Once again, we expect to hold a range of exciting social events. A full programme will be released later in the year.

    =====================================
    Dear colleagues,

    We are pleased to confirm a total of 32 papers which will be presented at HPYD5 in Auckland on 9-11 March 2015.

    Please don’t forget to register for the conference at

    We also suggest you book your hotel early as the Volvo Ocean Race will be in town. There are a number of suitable hotels within easy walking distance of the venue, indicated here
    https://www.google.co.nz/maps/search/hotels auckland/@-36.8460054,174.7645522,16z

    The conference is being held adjacent to the Viaduct Events Centre (west of the Viaduct Basin), and the ice-breaker function is at the Maritime Museum (east of the Viaduct Basin).

    Note that this time printed proceedings are only available if pre-ordered on the registration page. All delegates will receive an electronic copy of the proceedings.

    We look forward to seeing you in Auckland and wish you a happy Christmas.

    Regards,

    David Le Pelley

    ======================
    As a bit of background, I understand that the plan is to have HPYD, Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium and one other sailing yacht technology conference (I forget which one) on a three year cycle in the future, so there will be an international sailing technology event every year, either in Auckland, Annapolis or Europe.

    I have co-written papers at the first two HPYDs and the other papers were certainly very good - I wish I could have been the author who went.

    • The full programme of events is now available online here <http://www.hpyd.org.nz/hpyd5_programme.aspx> .

    • If you would like to receive a printed copy of the proceedings remember to order them in advance (complimentary copy for authors).

    • There will be a session on Monday evening open to the public where Knut Frostad will talk about the design of the VO65 and the evolution of the Volvo Ocean Race. HPYD5 delegates may attend this event without further registration.

    • The conference dinner will be held at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Our guest speaker will be Tom Schnakenberg.

    • Optional industry tours will be held on Thursday 12th March. These will allow delegates to visit the facilities of Core Builders Composites, Southern Spars and the University of Auckland. Register for these free of charge when completing your conference registration. More details will follow.



    The conference will be held in the fabulous Marine Events Centre, shown below. The yachts will be just outside the window, which may make it hard to concentrate but will allow a full integration between theory and practice. Don’t miss out – register now here <http://www.hpyd.org.nz/registration.aspx> !

    More updates on upcoming HPYD conference in Auckland:

    =============================

    As part of the 5th High Performance Yacht Design conference hosted by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), in conjunction with the University of Auckland, there will be a free public lecture <http://www.engineering.auckland.ac.nz/en/about/events/events-2015/hpyd-conference-public-lecture.html> during the Volvo Ocean Race stopover.

    Knut Frostad is the Chief Executive of the Volvo Ocean Race. This is the third time that he has managed the VOR and he was instrumental in changing the event from an open class rule into the strict one-design, sailor driven contest that it has now become. He will be speaking about the evolution of the Volvo Ocean Race event and the merits of the one-design.

    Peter Montgomery – the voice of NZ yachting will be the master of ceremonies at the event, which will be held in a specially built hospitality marquee on the end of Hobson Wharf.

    When:

    Monday 9th March 6.30pm – 8.30pm

    Where:

    The Members Lounge Hospitality Venue, Hobson Wharf (temporary structure, behind Viaduct Events Centre)

    Register:

    Numbers are strictly limited. For more information and to register for the event please visit this page <http://www.engineering.auckland.ac.nz/en/about/events/events-2015/hpyd-conference-public-lecture.html> . There will be no late registration on the day. HPYD5 conference delegates have already been registered for this event.
