Welcome to the Sailing Yacht Research Foundation’s Technical Resources Library.
This library builds upon the work of Claudio Fassardi and the website he started in 2003, Sailboat-Technology.com. It is intended to be a resource for academics, professionals and the general public providing a central location to access papers, articles, research data, and other sailboat performance related information.
SYRF promotes open access to research and papers. As a policy, all results and reports from SYRF funded research projects are made available to the public. We encourage authors to publish their work with a Creative Commons license.
