    Thank you. I will have to take the time to review this.

    Need help figuring out target speeds

    I made a mistake when I posted the charts above. The first chart should be : These are the numbers read from the polar diagram: This is the VMG calculated from the above table: This just doesn't make sense to me. For example: Look at the results for 12 knots of true wind. The above table says I have a VMG speed of 4.5 knots for 37.5*, 39.0*, 40.5*, 42.0*, 43.5*, and 45.0*. This is a huge range of angles with the actual boat speed ranging from 5.7 knots at 37.5* to 6.3 knots at 45.0*. That being said, at I think I'm lucky if I can point at 45 degrees true at 12 knots. It's a deep keel boat with new laminate sails but sailing at 45 true, I'd be right in the groove for sailing to windward. Usually, my telltales are all flying perfectly at at 32* apparent in 12 knots true. So why would the charts above suggest that my boat should be sailing much higher angles to make the best VMG? Where have I erred?

    Oh Goody, more nukes.

    what good is a treaty if it's being violated by one of the parties? Bolton, Donald Trump’s third national security adviser, has issued a recommendation for withdrawal from the 1987 intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty (INF), which the US says Russia has been violating with the development of a new cruise missile.

    Need help figuring out target speeds

    I'm trying to figure out target speeds for a 34' boat. (performance cruiser... bleach bottle, etc) I have interpolated the polar graph provided from the factory and created a spreadsheet were I've listed the boat speed for 2 knot increment of windspeed at true wind angles in increments of 1.5 degrees. In a second chart, I have calculated the VMG for each data point by taking the cosine of the wind angle. As you see can above, the correct amount of significant digits gives you the identical VMGs for a kinda wide range of wind angles. The maximum values for each wind speed are in bold. So how do I determine which wind angle gives the best VMG for each wind speed? Do I take an average? Is this even possible with this method or am I going about this the wrong way?

    How can Trump be so heartless to say no
