    Have you read the book(s)?

    What do you think?

    Hi Marc,
    the answer is NO. I have ordered Part 2 and I`m waiting ... I do not think that I can just read the book. It has to be studied extensively.
    I am not a NA nor a designer. Regards, M.

    My bookshop told me to wait for the delivery of the book and to pay an extra fee of 16 €. So I switched over to
    amazon. They will deliver without an extra fee for post and package. But I have to wait for delivery up to September 4. May be it has to be printed on demand.:(:(:(

    Hi Marc, today (08.02. 2019) my copy arrived 16,-€ cheaper than from my bookshop and one month earlier than amazon promised. Good job!
    From the first view a great work with a lot of math, show images and drawings few photos just in the line with Ceslaw Antoni Marchajs "Sail Performance",
    Fabio Fossatis "Aero-Hydrodynamics and the Performance of Sailing Yachts", Frank Bethwaite "High Performance Sailing" and some more.
    Peter van Oossanen holds an M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Delft University of Technology.
    I´m interested in hydrodynamics and will try to understand more of the nature of lift and drag as written in chapter 5 and 6. Regards, Manfred

    I got my copy after a week directly from the publisher. I've just been browsing through them a little superficially and studying some sections that are relevant to me right now.
    There is a lot to absorb and digest.

    Thanks for the tip, Manfred.
