Fig 9.2 Estimation of For the mast the frontal area is taken as the mean thickness times the windage height, and the drag coefficient is set to l.O, somewhat lower than the undisturbed value of 1.2 used for the stays. This is reasonable, considering disturbances from spinnaker halyards etc, which act as turbulence stimulators. The drag of stays and shrouds may have to be added over components with different diameters. Geometrical values for the YD-40 are given within square brackets, as usual, but no drag values are given, since the windspeed will vary in the example below.
