Optimization of the sailing performance of yachts is one of our specialties. For these studies we use different velocity prediction programs (VPPís) for both keel yachts and traditional Dutch yachts. The program for traditional Dutch yachts is an in house development. Among other things we have performed an extensive study into the sailing performance of the Lemsteraak traditional Dutch yacht, in cooperation with Delft Technical University. The aim of the study was to design a new single figure (TVF), formula based, rating system for these yacht.
For the calculation and optimization of the sailing performance we use the following software: WinDesign (Wolfson Unit MTIA, Southampton, GB): keel yachts. PlatPres (eigen ontwikkeling): traditional Dutch yachts.
