Re: Generic Polars

There are Velocity Prediction Programs which will create polars - No idea how accurate they are.
I saved these links some time ago intending to play with VPPs to help decide on replacement sails but never got around to it.
You can download a trial VPP from Techsail ? Sailing Yacht Performance Analysis
I found this thread interesting at the time - old, so the links may not work
PCSail - Excel sheet to make VPP for Sailing yachts - Cruisers & Sailing Forums
As I said, I was looking at this some time ago, so you might Google, " Velocity Prediction Program" and see what you can discover.
