HPYD8: 2024 Conference

March 21March 22

HPYD is a series of conferences on high performance yacht design organised by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) NZ and the University of Auckland. The first conference was held in December 2002, and has since then showcased the latest developments in yacht research from around the globe. The conference enables naval architects, engineers, designers and researchers to present and hear papers on the current state of high performance yacht and power craft technology.

This March, Orcelle Horizon project partner and wingprovidor Oceanbird will present a paper on “Wind Tunnel Tests of a Two-Element Wingsail with Focus on Near-Stall Aerodynamics”, sharing insights from their development.
