Hull forms of high-performance sailing dinghies are very interesting for yacht designers. After a long period inwhich the attention has been focused on one-design boats, in recent years a few exciting restricted classes such asInternational Moth, International 14', 18’ Skiff and Class A catamaran become recognized in several countriesand led to interesting advances in high-performance yacht design.“1001VELAcup R3” class is two people racing dinghy designed according to a box rule with limitation on LOAand Bmax and total sail area. The boats must be designed and built by students of European Universities and raceyearly in Italy.This paper focuses on two best-ranked boats “LED” from the University of Palermo and “TryAgain” managedby the University of Naples but designed by the University of Roma3 team. These boats were definitely superioras regard motion resistance when tested without appendages during 2017 MIDWINTER INDOOR RACE and,although very different in main section shape, had comparable performances.The observed behaviours and the availability of experimental data suggested a suitable numerical approachand a fair comparison between experimental and numerical results is presented.
