© 2017 Elsevier LtdTwo pelagic otterboards, previously tested in a wind tunnel, have been tested in a flume tank prior to their analysis in real working conditions in sea trials. This intermediate step aims at providing guidance for sea trial planning and a basis for otter board performance analysis from real campaign data. The doors were rigged in working-like conditions in the flume tank, with onboard-mounted attitude sensors to provide at the same time a noisy environment as expected in sea ...
