Ahoy Matrosen!

Are you a keen sailor? Or, do you want to learn how the sails work? How a keel can keep you on course? Or, what course will win races?

Then join for the two part course: "Methoden der Strömungsbeeinflussung bei Segelyachten"

In the first semester, we will cover mostly theory including:

  • ·         Steady and unsteady lift
  • ·         The points of sail and how they affect the forces on our boat
  • ·         Wind and how the local terrain influences it
  • ·         Tactics used in racing

In the second semester will be a student project. In previous years, the projects have involved turning flow tufts into surface flow visualizations or designing and testing a keel in the wind tunnel.

It is best to take both semesters together.

Questions can be directed towards Matthew Lennie

The first class will be on the 19.10.2017 14:00 hrs in the Gallery HF-Gebäude
