  • VO 70 Polars Question for Jakob
    Board » Technical Support
    The V0 70 polars provided for the Miami to Kingston Race appear to contain some anomalous data points, resulting in odd inflections in the polar curves.

    The Performance Polar (for experts) table presented under Helpful Links indicates greater boatspeeds at twa 36 than twa 39 for tws 10 and tws 14 - this seems highly unusual and may be causing the double inflections in the polar curves. Also note that the file is labeled VO70_leg2, instead of the _leg4 file which was used more recently.

    So is this the correct performance model which will be used for this race, or will the more updated VO70_leg4 model be used instead?

    Also, a listing of the available polar data files and a link to them, along with a clear indication of which file is being applied for each race, would be a handy reference for everybody.

    brainaid: "Now, after finishing the real brain work above, I use a script to program my planed track into SOL using DCs (delayed commands)"

    Hmmmm ... as I suspected, your perfect tracks gave it away! Manually entering, and editing, the DC's is a time-consuming pain and I agree - you had an unfair advantage. But if you can provide a tool we can all use to improve this process, then please allow me to say 'Thank you very much!'

    And please come back and race with us - your expertise is sadly missed!

Altogether 1372 nm of great and demanding sailing from Hopa (the easternmost point of the Turkish Black Sea coast) to Iskenderun (the easternmost point of Turkey's Mediterranean coast).

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.

Lanzarote to Grenada 2023
It should be a great time of year to sail the third Ocean race of this Year in our luxurious Xp55, from the Canaries, 2865nm down to the lush Caribbean island of Grenada, famed for its rum, spices and chocolate. Serious chocoholics can even sign up for a tour, which includes a scrumptious three-course lunch spotlighting chocolate in every course.
