What information are you looking for? The AYRS has published some information and C. A. Marchaj did wind tunnel testing and some of the data was published by International Marine in 1996 in the book Sail Performance. Design data is available in some other papers if you need to design a rig.
All the best,
Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.
Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.
Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat
Never design a boat that is weaker then the mast
Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.
