Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

Stability and Safety

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Alica 33 is 1.96, indicating that this boat could - if evaluated by this formula alone - be accepted to participate in ocean races.


Immersion rate
