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 source 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 high-quality student projects.

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:

  • Sail Design, Analysis and Optimization
  • Rig Concepts
  • Performance Prediction
  • Resistance and Seakeeping
  • Stability
  • Hull and Appendage Design and Optimization
  • Foils and foiling crafts
  • Full Scale Instrumentation
  • Race Simulation
  • Weather Routing
  • Handicap Systems
  • Structures and Structural Analysis
  • Materials and Construction Methods
  • Structural Optimization of Hull, Appendages and Rigs
  • Development of Policies and Standards
  • Superyacht Systems
  • Wind Assisted Ships

Selected papers presented at the Chesapeake Sailing Yacht Symposium (CSYS) will automatically be considered for the Journal.  Interested authors are encouraged to visit the CSYS website.
