Viva SOLers.

With my friend Jan/bonknhoot we are preparing a new Timed Race to be sailed with a new SOL boat.

Yes, a new boat.

The new boat Polar Data is in the “crunch machine”, and, for the moment, all I can say it’s a boat that all SOLers dream about.

Not only the race field but, especially the boat - if the SOL committee will be kind to accept her - will bring new and hot adrenaline for everybody.

We’ll be back as soon as the boat is on the "lifting crane".

Be well.

Why is it "lopsided?"
None so blind
A2R, I think the diagram shows twa=[0,180] in a [0,360] graph.
Good morning all.

Yes, Kroppy is correct.

The Wind data is being worked on the TWA range (0; 180) degrees and the resulting graph has the TWA = 180º on the position that’s normally used by the 360º.
With that graph disposition you have more space to distribute the curves and it’s also easier to inspect the odd points.

Dear JB,

Is this based on a real life boat, or a boat that exists only on paper?

I am just curious.

Viva António.

Este barco é bem real e, em algum momento, também passou pelo papel de alguém.
Esta semana, o novo barco vai ser divulgado.

Abraço de

Viva Antonio.

This boat is very real and, at some point, also passed by the paper of someone.
This week, the new boat will be disclosed.

Viva all SOLers.

As promised we propose, not one, but two new races to be sailed with a new SOL boat.

First: the boat.

Wonderful! I was hoping there would be an AC72 polar available on sol, and I know other did too :)

I have two notes (for now ;)):
- The number you give contain negative speeds for tws=40kts, is that intentional?
- As of now, it's not possible to have different performance rules for different boats. Click here for details (especially the last couple of pages of that thread). As a result of this, the AC72 will be bound to use the same performance model as every other boat. This means gigantic performance losses due to the gigantic speeds of the "boat" (never really thought the AC72 could be called a boat :)) I (personally) hope that there will we a performance model in which one of two boat-specific parameters can be set for every boat.

Here is a picture of the polar:

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
