Jim, while you''re waiting/looking for your polars, try this...
For 10 knots and less of true wind, don''t sail any lower than 145 degrees.
For every knot over 10 knots true, you can sail another 5 degrees deeper.
Got this from an article written by someone that generalized what he discovered by analyzing many polars.
