A RANS ((Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes)) free surface flow solver has been used to model the flow around a 2-Dplaning plate ((Fn = 1.596)). Calculations have been made for both the plate planing at the free surface and with the freesurface approximated as a slip wall of prescribed form. Results for the lift force generated by the plate are presented andcompared for the two methods. The results of the approximated free surface are found to be closer to empiricalequations for flat plate lift than those where the free surface has been calculated. The work demonstrates the difficultiesof accurately capturing a known flow using a volume of fluid ((VOF)) approach. However future enhancements shouldoffer the ability to use such calculations for design
