This paper (in Dutch) describes the model tests carried out in the towing tank and in the wind tunnel for the design of a series of Lemsteraken, a traditional lee-board yacht used for cruising and racing in the Netherlands. The results of the wind tunnel tests for evaluating the performance of different combinations of sails varying in area, and design, form the primary subject of the paper
