High Performance Yacht Design conference topics

List of 'abstracts' published

Wednesday July 6th 2011, Author: James Boyd, Location: New Zealand

The provisional list of 'abstracts' for next year's High Performance Yacht Design conference has been published although final papers are still subject to review by the technical committee.

The next High Performance Yacht Design conferencewill be held over 12-14 March and the venue has been confirmed as the brand new Marine Events Centre in Auckland's Viaduct Basin. This state of the art building will literally be a stone's throw from the moored Volvo 70s, allowing easy access to all of the stopover events.
