Graf, K. and Wolf, E.: Flow Investigations for the Illbruck – Challenge, Seahorse Magazine, Southampton, 5/2002
Among the 8 yachts currently competing in the Volvo Ocean Race six are developed by the same yacht designer. To increase competitiveness against their rivals most teams started individual research and development programs to achieve some advantage in terms of boat
design and performance. The Illbruck Challenge found that one of the fields promising to be a candidate for successful optimisation would be the keel of the Volvo Ocean Racer (VOR), in particular the ballast bulb. Thus a research program has been invented with the intention to develop a new keel bulb design.
