23rd Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium

Post by AYRS Editor » Thu Feb 07, 2019 9:56 am

Annapolis, Maryland - The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) has opened online registration for the 23rd edition of the Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium (CSYS), held again this year at the US Naval Academy (USNA) over March 15-16, 2019. This triennial event features research papers presented by academics and practitioners from around the world in a variety of fields related to the design, engineering, performance and fabrication of sailing craft.

The research papers presented at this year's symposium are from researchers based all over the world: France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand and the USA. The topics presented are also extremely varied, ranging from hydrodynamics of slender Polynesian canoe hulls, to foiling behaviors in dinghys and Open 60's, to the science of Olympic 470 sailing performance. A complete list of papers, authors and abstracts can be found on the CSYS website.

This year's Keynote Speaker will be a frequent contributor to CSYS, Andy Claughton. He is one of the most experienced Americas Cup designers, having been involved with the competition since 1983.

He is now an independent Naval Architect and remains a long time member of the International Technical Committee working on the ORC rules for racing yachts, superyachts and now multihulls. He has published numerous papers, and won awards that include the Royal Institute of Naval Architects Small Craft Group Medal.

The schedule for the 23rd CSYS includes two days of talks and presentations held in Chauvenet Hall Room 100, a tour of the USNA Hydro Lab on Friday and a Cocktail Reception at Severn Sailing Association on Saturday evening.

For a complete list of paper titles, abstracts and to Register for the 23rd Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium, visit the event website at https://www.sname.org/chesapeakesailing ... mcsys/home.
