    Design from the Practical Side - Mr. Iver Franzen

    Thursday, October 18, 2018
    5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


    You are invited the join the SNAME Chesapeake section for the October technical meeting.  This month's meeting will feature Mr. Iver Franzen who will present "Design from the Practical Side". The event will be held at the Severn Sailing Association Clubhouse and parking will be available onsite. 

    Speaker Bio:
    Mr. Iver Franzen is a licensed practicing captain, as well as a naval architect, and therefore has been in a position over the years of actually experiencing some of the various design issues, some might say faux pas, that occur from time to time in yachts and commercial vessels.  This will be a discussion about some of the more important considerations having to do with vessel safety, ergonomics, and what happens when design priorities and processes get a bit murky.

    The 23rd Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium

    SNAME Section Meeting - Full

    Mar 15 - 16, (ET)


    The Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium is the world's largest running technical forum dedicated to advancing the study of the art and science of sailing yacht design technology. 

    Professional yacht designers and a wide variety of sailing enthusiasts travel from around the world to attend the CSYS Symposia to present papers and exchange ideas on sailing.  

    If you have an interest in sailing technology but have never attended the CSYS, don't miss out any longer.  The next symposium is scheduled for March of 2019 and designers from as far away as Australia and Japan will do what it takes to get here.  By attending the symposium you have the opportunity to visit with old friends and make new acquaintances in the sailing world.  Coffee breaks between presentation sessions overflow with enthusiastic sailing talk and provide a wonderful opportunity for authors and attendees to socialize.  The 23rd CSYS promises to be another memorable event, not to be missed.  

    We hope to see you in Annapolis for the 23rd CSYS on March 15-16, 2019 and the U.S. Naval Academy.
