  • 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!

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.
