As an ancient and charming navigation tool, the design and performance of sailboats have always been the focus of attention in the field of navigation technology. This article aims to explore the application of fluid dynamics in the design and performance optimization of sailboats. This article first introduces the basic concepts and principles of fluid mechanics, and then explores the applications of fluid mechanics in the resistance, lift, and stability of sailboats. By analyzing the design and optimization of different types of sailboats, the important role of fluid mechanics in improving sailboat speed, reducing resistance, optimizing sail shape, and ship stability has been revealed. This article emphasizes the value and potential of fluid mechanics in the field of sailing through case analysis, providing useful reference for future sailing design and technical research.
