Polars

Postby daves » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:01 pm

Evening all.
Now this is the longest of long shots.

Does anyone have or know of a source of Polars for a HC43t. Reason for asking is that I'm experimenting with weather routing software and it only really works if we have accurate polar information.

Happy holidays for those with Christmas break coming up.

We will be at sea en route to the Cape Verde's.

Cheers
Dave

I can't say whether this is any good or not because I'm an android user and this appears to be an app for iphone only, and no idea if it still exists...but you should be able to find it in the appstore. ipolar, creates a polar plot for your boat given a set of inputs (which should be readily available). This is the website that describes the app:

Sailboatdata.com has some info on our boats, the brochure on this board for the 43 has significant info in it as well (in terms of getting the inputs for the ipolar program).

If one of you iphone users could let the board know if it works, that would be great!

Best of luck,
Steve
