Event Details

Lecture:  Design Evolution of Team Emirates New Zealand AC72 Catamaran for the 34th America's Cup

  

The 34th America's Cup was held in September 2013 in San Francisco, with a new class of high-speed catamarans capable of speeds up to 50 knots.  The Cup was finally won by Team Oracle USA in a hotly contested and exciting race series against challenger Team Emirates New Zealand.

Maine Maritime Museum is pleased to host Harold Youngren, a member of the design team for Team Emirates New Zealand.  Harold was involved in many aspects of the aerodynamic and hydrodynamic design of the New Zealand AC72 catamaran.  These amazing racing machines are pushing the envelope of sailing design with hydrofoiling hulls and wing-mast designs.  Harold will discuss the design and development of the AC72 catamaran and relate the hydrodynamic and aerodynamic challenges faced in creating and racing these novel and extreme racing yachts.
