Cape Horn Engineering
Cape Horn Engineering was founded in 2007 with the vision of providing world-class expertise in marine CFD and industrial experience to support the design of racing yachts.
We have been involved in several America’s Cup campaigns and their designs have dominated the Around-the-World Volvo Ocean Race for almost a decade, winning three times in a row, with ABN Amro (2005/06), Ericsson Racing Team (2008/09) and Groupama Sailing Team (2011/12).
Our expertise has grown in the America’s Cup environment, which requires rigorous testing and validation to remain competitive at the highest level. We were proudly involved in the design team at Land Rover BAR, the British Challenger for the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda 2017, whose aim was to #BringTheCupHome, where it all started in 1851.
Our flow analysis have also been proven time and again in a wide variety of other marine applications including sailing yachts, power boats, high speed vessels, planing craft, advanced and unconventional hulls, commercial cargo ships, offshore platforms and structures for renewable energy.
Based in Portsmouth, England, the company founder Dr. Rodrigo Azcueta has successfully expanded the business and extended the range of global services within the maritime sector to commercial ships, large superyachts, and more recently the renewable energy sector.
