[automatically translated] The sails of a vessel are subjected to large displacements due to their highly flexible nature, for this reason, the form it takes when subjected to the force of the wind is different from that of the project established by the sailmaker. In the paper the authors propose a method based on the use of the photogrammetric technique for the relief of sailing sails into true greatness. The use of Reverse Engineering optical techniques allows, in fact, the three-dimensional reconstruction of the model of the entire sail. They are built CAD models of the sails of a boat of Meteor class sailing conditions (flying shape) and the design conditions (shape design) that are analyzed using CFD methods.
