Had some trouble uploading the kml file so at the risk of a double post here goes:

I designed a 9' Dyer Dhow polar that Jan converted to real math so that SOL could host a virtual Frostbite distance race. Normally we hold 5-10 races a day if the wind cooperates but I don't think that's possible in SOL's framework.

This course is ~18nm long so if the wind is good could take as little as 6 hours but is likely to take 12.

Let me know what you think, and thanks for everything!

ANy thoughts on the Dyer race?
Is there a picture of the special polar you made for this?
Here is the Polar Diagram for the dinghy. Tx to Bonk for doing the math crunching and viz based on my basic TWA/Speed table

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
