    I’m watching a webinar presentation by PredictWind and the topic of the vessel’s boat performance polar came up.  

    is there a commonly accepted and available polar diagram/table available for the WS32?

    Thank you,

    Sorry, I have never seen one.  Maybe on of the guys that race their W32s might have one.

    Hello Tim, Jay, Bud, and anyone else interested.  The Polar Diagram for the W-32 is available from the ORR ( offshore racing rules).  Search for “performance package”  it will cost $300.  The Polars will be for a sloop rigged boat.  Not a cutter.   Experience shows that the cutter rig can exceed the predictions when the Staysail is used appropriately.  The “Faired” boats that have been modified underwater will perform better against the Polars than the stock boats.   Good luck,    Dave
