Preliminary analysis of log data from the Fiji windship 'Cagidonu'

Satchwell, C.J. (1986) Preliminary analysis of log data from the Fiji windship 'Cagidonu' , Southampton, UK University of Southampton 27pp. (Ship Science Reports, 24).

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


A preliminary analysis of log data from the Fiji windship 'Cagidonu' is made to assess fuel savings from its sail rig. Limited data, collected in a random fashion, during normal ship operation, have been analysed using techniques developed for larger vessels. Data are not fully representative of all sailing conditions. For the sailing conditions recorded, fuel savings are around 37% with all sails and 21% with mizzen and jib only. Recommendations are made regarding future data acquisition.

A comparison is made between 'Cagidonu' and a similar vessel 'Na Mataisau' which was extensively analysed prior to her loss. This comparison suggests that many results for 'Na Mataisau' may be factored and used for 'Cagidonu'.
