Journal of Sailing Technology

The Journal of Sailing Technology (ISSN 2475-370X) is an online peer-reviewed journal, jointly published by SNAME and SNAME's SC-2 Sailing Craft Panel, whose objective is to provide a medium for the publication of research achievements and engineering practices inherent to all aspects of sailing. The journal provides an open access exchange platform for academics, researchers, students, designers, manufacturers, industry professionals and sailors alike, as well as the general public with an interest into sailing technology.

The Editorial Board welcomes submissions in two formats:

  1. Full research papers, with unlimited word count, peer-reviewed within 8 weeks.
  2. Short research papers, under 3000 words, peer-reviewed within 4 weeks. This is particularly suitable for high-quality short research communications and exceptional student papers.

Exceptional student papers, which must be authored by sole students, are considered separately from core archival papers, taking into account of the early career stage of the authors.

The Journal of Sailing Technology is intended to cover fundamental studies on analytical and numerical models, theoretical and practical developments, physical experiments, and results and analysis of full scale data. Publications ranging from Olympic class dinghies to round the world yachts and superyachts, as well as wind-assisted ships are welcomed, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics of Sailing Vessels
  • Sails, Wingsails, Flettner Rotors and Kites
  • Rig Concepts
  • Performance Prediction
  • Resistance and Seakeeping
  • Stability
  • Hull and Appendages, including Foils
  • Full Scale Instrumentation and Measurements
  • Sailing Simulators
  • Weather Routing
  • Rating Systems
  • Structures and Structural Analysis
  • Materials and Manufacturing
  • Policies, Regulations and Standards
