Re: Polar Diagram

Is this the correct polar diagram. Looking at it the LWL is shorter than the Lucia.
Perhaps they use a different number for the polar analysis, I know nothing about the techniques.

Re: Polar Diagram

Having made some research about Weather Routing, I made this CVS file from the diagram Cotemar posted.
Hope diagram data is fine with wind speed and hull speed in knots.

As no CSV file can be uploaded, use the XLS and save in CSV if you need it.
Better to remove the grapic before converting to CSV.

Still trying to find the best WR application.

Questions :
Why many polar diagram show a 20kn wind curve extending to 50deg ?
I saw the same with Saba diagram.
