Abstract
The main objective of this paper is the presentation of a theoretical study of the wave energy in some zones of the Barcelona World Race (BWR) considering different theories, how much of this energy is transferred to the boat and if it is possible to use that energy, as propulsion energy. Nowadays, the absorption of wave energy (offshore, inshore or on board) is low utilized and has important costs. That makes this subject become more interesting. The first section of this paper is a study of th...
