Join the Hampton Roads Section of SNAME for dinner and a presentation from Dudley Dix on surviving a small boat Capsize.

Dudley Dix is an award-winning yacht designer educated by Westlawn Institute of Technology. He has been designing professionally since 1980, when he gained his first design commission for a 35ft steel cruiser. He has designs from 8ft to 70ft and is currently working on a 72ft aluminum design for a New York client. In 1994/5 he designed and built the 38ft plywood ultra-light displacement monohull “Black Cat”, then raced it across the South Atlantic Ocean and back. He developed a unique radius chine building method for that boat, which has generated a constant stream of plywood design commissions since then, resulting in monohull and multihull sailboat designs from 15ft to 55ft using developments of that build method. He moved from Cape Town, South Africa, to Virginia Beach in 2004, where he continues to design and sell his designs, with the help of his wife, Dehlia. He currently sails two of his smaller designs, the prototype of the 13ft high performance Paper Jet trapeze skiff and a more sedate Argie 15 family day-sailer.
