A groundbreaking introduction to howsailboats behave, and a guide for predictingthe performance of a modern sailing yacht. Aero-hydrodynamics and the Performance of Sailing Yachts is the first major yacht design treatise to come along ina decade.

With its cutting-edge explanations of howsails, keels, and rudders interact with their respectivefluids to make a boat sail--and of how to use thatknowledge to optimize a boat--this is a book thatevery student of yacht design will want on his orher shelf.

The author is involved in academic research and is a consulting engineer whose practice is at the cutting edge of the science of yacht design.

Aero-Hydrodynamics is primarily written for others who share his passion and sophisticated level technical expertise. But if you have a technical background and enjoy articles Scientific American, the book is full of diagrams and illustrations.

The caveat: the text is often preoccupied with technical issues which are conveyed by frequent mathematical equations. If you are a sailor looking for a better understanding of the physics of sailing, the how and why of making a boat sail fast, then "The Symmetry of Sailing" by Ross Garrett is not as lavishly illustrated, but it would be a far better choice.

If Professor Fossati's calculus is a foreign language for you, but you want a peek into the theoretical world of science, you can focus on his book's graphics and concentrate on their message. At the very least you will have been able to visit with a designer at the highest level of the sport of sailing. For naval architects and engineers, this is the "must have" book on sailing.

It doesn't get any better than this - even if I did not understand a word he said. While quite technical for the lay person, there appendices that helped me get upto speed on the physics. Most people with an appreciation for physics and math should be able to pick up the material in the book. I picked this up for help in designing RC racing boats, and I have gleaned quite a bit from the book. Very good. One of the best boat project book I ever studied.

The secrets of the thing. Essencial when you need to get further into knowledge in the matter. Interesting and clear. The book assumes that the reader has a good background in Physics and Mathematics. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
