Investigation Of The Use Of Drogues To Improve The Safety Of Sailing Yachts And Life Rafts

Model tests were conducted to investigate the use of drogues to improve the safety of sailing yachts and life rafts. The tests investigated the hazard of capsize by a breaking wave. The boats were assumed to be in a survival type storm with all sail off and not being controlled by the crew. The models were built to a scale of 1 to 32 and were weighted to give the proper dynamic characteristics. Two methods of breaking wave simulation were used: (1) A horizontal jet of water discharged at the model; (2) A breaking wave formed by the wake of a towed boat. A mathematical model was prepared which first simulated the motion of the boat-drogue system in non-breaking waves and then simulated a breaking wave strike. The tests indicated that the hazard of breaking wave capsize could be greatly reduced by the use of a properly engineered drogue. However, a systematic investigation of the parameters affecting the boat/drogue system, i.e. loads on the boat and drogue, line elasticity, wind and wave forces, has yet to be undertaken. More study and testing is required before a specific design can be recommended. (Author).

Rescue In The Pacific A True Story Of Disaster And Survival In A Force 12 Storm

In June of 1994 a dangerous "bomb" storm caught dozens of cruising sailors by surprise as they voyaged north from New Zealand. This is the true story of how nine yachts struggled to survive the hurricane-like conditions. Boats were battered by fierce winds and capsized by seas towering well over 50 feet high. Equipment was ripped loose, and water penetrated every weak point. Masts collapsed, rudders broke, and sailors lost steering control when they needed it most. The crews coped as best they could with injury, fear, exhaustion, and illness. Their electronic calls for help were picked up by satellites and radio operators, who initiated a massive air and sea search. This is the story of heroic rescues, human endurance, and tragic loss.
