Anyone have any insight on where I could find polars for the J/36? No luck on the web so far.

Talk to your rating authority. I know Seahorse has polars on irc and older ims measurements.
Failing that talk to the designers, they should know or know where to get such information

Thanks Mark,

 

I'm guessing Seahorse is a member here on SA and not a website... I have sent an e-mail to Jboats but no reply. I'm probably pretty low on the priority list. I'd be surprised if there are even any that exist. Oh well.... just have to make our own with experience, and maybe the help of other J/36 racers!

Your sailmaker may have some.  If the boat was ever IMS measured it should have or probably US Ailing should have for any J36 ever measured.  Seahorse is a magazine, in the UK, about sailing.  

 

It's a luscious boat to sail.  Enjoy her and remember to keep the power on until she gets moving very well.  That is for both upwind and down.
