Nothing like data to be able to compare both boat's performance and to see if that difference is big or not. Do you think you can have this information?


I or any interested in the boat could of course ask for that. I wonder if it would say that much since I think, to make this boat interesting, you need to tweak the rig as much as possible. Lower cut, maximized genua, maximized main, perhaps longer boom, perhaps lowered boom, as I did on the Oceanis 40. All blocks changed, main sheet with track on cockpit floor. All these things does not influence polars but some.
