you compare the centre of lateral area of the hull with the centre of force of the sails and the difference is the lead. The percentage of the lead will depend on the type of hull and rig. Yacht design is not an exact science so each designers conclusions vary, its best to read a much as you can on the subjust to draw your own conclusions.
