  • 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!

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!
