Re: Generic Polars
Unless you sail in flat water, with a perfectly clean bottom, brand new sails and have perfect trim, they are totally useless. If you have all these things, they are modestly useless. Besides, getting to know how a new boat sails in various conditions is part of the mating process. Embrace it, don't overthink it.
They are not "totally useless", seriously. You can use them as a guide when you are sailing if you see fit to do so. We use them in racing all the time. Just because you have no use for them, doesn't mean others do not.
