Hello and think you for your amazing tools
I used thoses ones three times with succefull results on the vendee globe de VR
Now it's time to go after 10 to 15 days in réal Transat from Tenerife to Capo verde and, after a stop over at this place from Mindelo de Sao Vicente to Rio Brasil by Fernando de Corhuna or Recife.
Or the only tool i know is for The 60 feet open (of vendee globe)

Is it possible to configure with polar(s) with an approximation for our boat ? ?
it's a Catana 44" with 10 persons and a very big load.
His speed is many times between 6 and 7,5nds in alizés

Think you for your help !

PS: I go to Tenerife just after next WE.

If I understand correctly you want to use zezo for real navigation?

It would be pretty useful for a offshore race. If you have unlimited internet connection and a boat that was used in VR game in the past.

I'm not sure I have anything resembling a 44ft cruiser readily available.

And a web site is not very useful when offshore, so you should check one of the real-world weather routing services like Predictwind.

Thinks for your so fast answers,

For GeGax : yes

For zezo

its a low speed catamaran

I don't know how to use Predictwind for "routage" I only know to Weather Forecasts

Zezo is not made for real ...
Squid would be more appropriate or a MaxSea TZ Navigator with charts and the routing module

Edit : OpenCpn with routing module and charts CM93, GPS Antenna USB or GPS in nmea0183

you get a minimum of 4 knots wind from zezo ;)

I would use PredictWind, it is pretty easy to use and has great support. I have used nearly every other piece of routing software and most are pretty complicated. I work for PredictWind so will be rather biased:)
You can select the polar for your boat and apply a lower % to your polars for you big load.
This is my current routing for VR using 4 weather models.
You can use the Offshore Application on Mac, PC iOS and Android. It is designed for low bandwidth situations.
