Hi,
I'm buying a Bull 7000 and have found pretty much everything there is to find about the Bull except polar diagrams. If anybody could help me with this would be really happy.

Cheers
Michael

I have tried for a while and never found them.
It is great boat though, needs weight upwind, but a riot reaching and downhill.

Yes, i tried with the designer, Greg Young, but he could not help me. He let it all away to Europe as they started the production of the extended Bull. The European class association should have them but the website is down so nu luck there. Got great help from this Aussie (thanks Geoff, for giving me all the good stuff. The tuning and trim-guides was great! Nice clips!) and i tried with some other Bull-owners as well but still no polar for the 7.5m Bull 7000.

There is at least one with an ORC cert, that will have VPP numbers on it. It's a start.

Michael,
what do you need the Polars for? Have a Bull since 1996, great boat, great fun to sail but have never ever looked at Polars. Just trying to squeeze out all the speed she got.
With waves and choppy water, we stayed with the no1 jib and a reefed main and with flat water we found ourselfs in good shape with a full main and jib nos.2
smooth sailing

There are no battens (on the pictures) in the jib....Is that bad?

Nevermind, then. I thought the lines ending with the black patches were battens.

Posted Image okay, think we got it wrong, the boat on the picture is Manfreds, not mine (that looks as battens to me)

Well done,
However I am wondering if those take the rotating pole in consideration.
We used to go deeper with the pole rotated and easing the the spinnaker tack a lot.
I would concur with Manfred , sail the boat and get its groove before blindly stick to polar numbers.
Have fun (you will)

I will Posted Image and my guess is that they only use the main and jib in the polar.

Interresant... never seen polars in AWA before. That's useful
