The Secret of Sailing
by Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson
Number of pages: 175
In this book we present a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories by Kutta-Zhukovsky for lift in inviscid flow and by Prandtl for drag in viscous flow.

These lecture notes have been prepared as a first course in fluid mechanics up to the presentation of the millennium problem listed by the Clay Mathematical Institute. Our primary goal is to debunk this beautiful problem as much as possible.
