The effects of mast height and centre of gravity on
re-righting have been investigated experimentally using
free and captive models. Free model motions were
measured using six degree of freedom photogrammetry.
Captive model forces were measured using a six
component force balance. The results have shown that a
relatively small increase in mast height has a much
greater effect than the increase in limit of positive
stability used in the experiments. It would appear from
the results that the overriding factors influencing rerighting
in these experiments are the mast height and the
wave height and steepness.
