Julian Bethwaite. Aussie 18 foot skiff sailor and boat builder. His dad published a few books pushing the limits of hull design, drag calculations, and the theory and practice of high speed sailing. Julian did lots of the assist work and test drove many of the new designs - and is still willing to answer random questions from random people today. Pops up in various web fora to offer expertise.
