I've made the following approximation for the krys map:
lat = -2.855E-7 * x^2 - 0.002296592 * x + 69.251568
lon = 0.008093847 * y - 150.31126
This is my first draft : a BWR polar
I think timings are close to what happened, except in Euro-Leg 4, trajectories are not always right, though....
It still needs some corrections.

Don't use for navigation !!! :-)

OK, found some time :) and created a script to parse the addviso xml files and 'enrich' the results with data from the grib files.
I will try to come up with a least squares fit for curves to match the data. Anyone know good basis functions for this?
I am curious how this will turn out. The data doesn't look particularly 'neat'. I attached some plots.
@Tarco. I'll have a look at your file as soon as I have some results of my own.

Those look great. Immediate impressions are of deeper vmg downwind and even more light wind speed. It looks like there are interesting things going on headsail reaching as well.
Back after a month...
Is it only me ? I don't have access to Krys Ocean race tracker anymore...

My impression : when they pinch (TWA35), they are able to keep the speed they have build. When they haven't build the speed, they stay at half-ish the top speed they can reach.
That makes 2 sets of speed at low TWA. One set at almost twice the wind speed when they have build the top speed, coming from higher TWA and another set of "low" speed when the speed is not built yet... don't know if I'm clear...
That could probably be simulated by keeping the high speed with a huge loss of speed (50 % or so) when tacking at TWA 50 or less. Or maybe take a top speed of 3/4 of sample speed...

Back to sampling Euro Tour before it disappears too... New results in a few days.
Next races will be in june (Euro Tour) then October 2013 (World Tour in legs)

Back again...
All the trackers have disappeared, so I can't go on with the calcs....

Here are the results I got, up to now. (see attached)

Between brackets, the number of occurences.
When I found several results, too different one from the other, I kept both.

I hope a polar can be created from that.

Looks good Tarco - I think we probably have enough data for a good guess. I can help bring it all together, or would you like to do the honours?

They'll be racing the "Route des Princes" in June as 4 shorter legs around Europe. We might not be able to fit all legs in (though it would make a nice series). RC probably has an idea of what's on deck for June, but it's always a busy month. Even if we don't do them in SOL we can "race" the new polar as a final check.

The *big* race will be the Transat in November? I hope they all make it to the start.
The SOL Racing Year shows what we have pretty much committed to in June .. it is a busy month... but if you can find a way to fit these new races in please feel free to do so! I am all for new ventures :-)

Are the races already in bed with a virtual sailing platform? If so, then that is another issue to be "managed" :-)
I would really love to build the SOL polar.

As June is already overbooked, we should probably not try to run the Princes races. But we can use them to compare the "predicted" speeds to the real ones. They will probably publish a real time tracker on line.
Probably a good way to make corrections to the 'prototype'.

Then, maybe, run a short race in September as a warm-up for crews before the Atlantic race in November. The polar should be ready by then.

The only problem is that "How to create SOL polar for dummies" is not published yet... :-)
I'll probably (certainly) need some help... :-)
76T, on second thought, I reckon you should create the "guessed" polar, so we could try it on a short race in may. And compare it to the real "Route des Princes" legs in June.

I believe that would take you a few hours when I would need weeks, if not more, just to understand how to do...

But I would like you to explain me afterwards, if you've got time to. :-)

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
