OK,I'm a dummy. I can't figure out how to see the various polars before picking a boat! Not much time left. Can someone point me the right direction? Thanks.
On the homepage is a blog about the race. Click "here" to see polars.
Duh! Don't know how I missed that. Thanks.

Time-on-time preliminary handicaps based on NOAA forecast:

If I understand the handicapping correctly, 'uprising' is performing best in these low winds. I do like max VMG at 180 to the wind!!!!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Interesting boat, uprising, actually sails faster downwind at TWS 8kn than at TWS 11 kn. How they do that?
Here is my suggestion about the polar for "uprising", as shown in both the original presentation and in the SOL screen. This was requested by "WhyNot".
It does suggest an error may have been made in deriving the polars---and that the superior performance of 'uprising' may actually be due to a calculation error????

That makes sence! I noted the "strange behaviour approaching finish line. Saw a couple of uprisings on "long final" sailaing approx TWA 180. Thought maybe I could catch them - but No Way. Suddenly they went into OverDrive:) Saw this in Navmonpc (and I know Nnavmonpc may not be accurate) Also uprisings well behind caught up. I think the boats are performing according to the weird Polar.

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
