HPYD6 

THE VOLVO YACHT RACE IS RETURNING TO AUCKLAND AND SO WILL HPYD

The HPYD conferences are timed to coincide with an international yachting event. HPYD6 will coincide with the 2018 Volvo Ocean race Auckland stopover.

Due to a lack of high-quality technical abstracts submitted, the HPYD committee has made the decision to change the format of the HPYD6 conference. As such, there will be no publication of papers and no formal conference presentations. Instead, there will be a focus on providing a range of exciting, publicly accessible presentations and keynote addresses delivered by some of the top designers and engineers involved in the America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race.

Planning for HPYD7 has already begun. It will coincide with the America’s Cup in Auckland in 2021, and will return to a more traditional format with a full complement of papers and speakers.
