Re: Generic Polars
Polars are a set of plots or tables of boat speed vs. wind angle for specific wind speeds.
target optimal boat speeds for each wind angle drawn on a polar plot... bow being 0°, beam being 90° stern being 180° drawn for a range of wind speeds.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
