The absence of an Australian challenge in the last two America's Cup has meant that yacht research within Australia has had to scale down. Despite this the strength and importance of the sailing industry has helped to keep yacht testing advancing at the Australian Maritime College (AMC). The project "Investigation into Re-Righting Tendencies of Modern Sailing Yachts" is one project which is now producing spin-offs for the entire field of sailing yacht research.
