ROUTER™ ... predicts sail performance using historical weather over a specific race course or leg
Router takes a boat’s polars and combines them with a historical or predicted weather file and races the boat between the start and fiinish of a leg. Changes can be made to the boat’s configuration allowing North designers to predict the fastest configuration for a specific race. This tool was initially developed by Michael Richelson of North Sails for the Illbruck
Volvo Ocean Race Team.
