Description: Sailing Yacht Design has been accepted as a standard work for many years and Mr. Phillips-Birt approaches his subject scientifically and without dogmatism, explaining the art and progress of yacht design before proceeding to recent developments and practical details.
Here is a treatise on everything the reader needs to know about what makes a well-designed sailing vessel, set out in a highly readable form. The author deals with hull form and type, the keel, stability and ballast, and balance. He then examines considerations of the hull and rig in relation to the rating rules.
Mast, sail and rigging plans, construction, accommodation and hull shape and the combination of sail and power are all dealt with at length. Finally there is a chapter devoted to the calculations and another to the actual business of drawing designs.
Altogether this is a most valuable book for all sailing yacht owners as well as would-be designers, by a writer who is very widely known to the yachting public for his regular contributions to the yachting press and for his articles on the subject which appear in many other magazines.
In this revised edition there is a discussion of the International Offshore Rule, together with its full text, and the methods of programming a computer for obtaining comparative ratings.
This has been contributed by Commander Sir David Mackworth Bt., founder and Managing Director of South Coast Rod Rigging.
