Comments about US Sailing Yacht Design Explained:

A great resource on the science of sailboat design. A practical How-to. Killing's book is a necessary companion to Ted Brewer's, Understanding Yacht Design. Discusses high performance forms, CAD design process and other elements of modern sailboat design. Great Book.
