A verification and validation procedure for yacht sail aerodynamics is presented. Guidelines and an example of application are provided. The importance of verification and validation to assess modelling error and ranking different deign candidates is discussed. In the presented example, lift, drag and L2 norm of the pressures were computed with uncertainties of the order of 1% with a number of cells of the order of one million.
