A detailed examination of the performance of a typical upwind sail rig arrangement was carried out for different heel and yaw angles using a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver. Experimental wind tunnel data provided by the Wolfson Unit for Marine Technology and Industrial Aerodynamics were used to validate the calculated CFD results. The computed results demonstrate good agreement and the effect of mesh density on the flow solution is presented. The purpose of this work is to identify the downwind position and track of the resultant sail vortex system. The ability to model correctly this behaviour within a yacht race simulation is critical to identifying the blanketing effect between two yachts.
