Pearson 303 polar curve

I have a 1968 nPearson 303 which I race in the Beer Can series at my yacht club. I am new to racing and I would like to do as well as my boat and crew's skill will permit. I have read that polar curves will help me get to target speeds for my boat. Can anyone help or dorect me to a source?

your best bet would be a Pearson owners association. IIRC, USSA
might also have polars available.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Unfortunately, the Pearson 303 does not appear on the list of boats with polars available from US Sailing.
