Forces on a sailboat

  1. Oct 13, 2009 #1

    First of all I m sorry about my bad english.

    Anyhow my question:

    What kind of forces does react on a sailinboat, take as example a VO70 boat.
    I need to know what kind of Momentum the VO70 makes if he sails with 8 knots. I cant find it on the internet.

    The cantingkeel delivers a opposite momentum on the sailboat to stable the boat straight into the water. What i want to know is the perfect weight of the cantingkeel and angle on a 8 knots sailin boat

    greetings the dutch guy
