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. :-)

Susan Hood Trophy Race 2024

Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) welcomes racers to Sailonline’s virtual version of their fourth virtual Susan Hood Trophy race. This is a 75nm weekender on western Lake Ontario starting and finishing at the Port Credit Yacht Club (PCYC) via Niagara and Burlington, and is one of two that will count towards a special Sailonline's LOOR Series medals. As our Beneteau First 36.7 managed the course so well in previous years, we shall race her again!

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
