Sail7 is a tool designed for the analysis of sail boat performance.
It is based on the VLM and panel methods developed for the program XFLR5.
The current version is released in alpha phase for testing and feedback.
Further development will depend on user interest.
For information, this program has been initially developed as version 7 of XFLR5, hence the name.
On November 4th, 2012, Sail7 has become an open source development project hosted by sourceforge.
Documentation is unavailable at this stage of the development. Please follow the steps detailed in the session example file to get started with Sail7.
