Find the best configuration of your boat to beat your rating! Big or small genoa? Symmetric or asymmetric spinnaker? How much stability? To answer these questions you must balance together the changes in boat performance and the wind conditions of the race. The Race Optimization Package uses the Offshore Racing Rule velocity predictioin program to do just that. An owner can run virtual racers with a fleet consisting of his current boat experimental variations of it as well as competitors' boats. Racing the fleet through a variety of wind conditions enables the owner to find which boat fares the best against the handicaps for any weather pattern. The biggest variable in the equation for any given race.
