This paper (in Dutch) describes the process involved in choosing the main design variables of the keel and the rudder of sailing yachts such as: lateral area, aspect ratio, taper ratio, sweep angle, section shape, etc. The application of winglets on keels and rudders to augment side force and reduce drag is also covered.
