    Where can I find and purchase a copy of the paper:
    "A Velocity Prediction Program for Ocean Racing Yachts" by Justin E. Kerwin
    Have done a Google but can only find other papers that have used it as a reference.

    Very good information of VPP also in the new book of Fabio Fossati: Aero-hydrodynamics

    Just understand that there are many, many "Velocity Prediction Programs", and that "the VPP" used by IMS may be different.
