When steering a ship one must take a wind force into consideration as one of the forces acting on a ship. In the ocean wind and waves originate at the same time, but in the harbor and the inland sea the influence of the wind on the ship is superior to the waves. In order to treat it, the wind forces and moment are substituted into the manoeuvering equation. In this paper, by using C. Aage's results (1), R.M. Isherwood's method (2) and results of T. Tsuji and others (3) the authors investigated the following about the various kinds of ships. (1) The conditions for the ship to keep the straight course and the relations between the wind speed and the motion of the ship in the uniform wind. (2) The relation between the rudder area, the lateral projected area above and below the water line, and the maximum wind speed in the freely manoeuverable range, (3) The turning path in the uniform wind and (4) navigation on a straight course by the auto pilot.
