 French term or phrase: polaire "Les polaires d’un bateau sont la représentation graphique et numérique du potentiel de vitesse du bateau par rapport à une force de vent et à un angle que fait le bateau avec le vent. " Les polaires sont très longues à établir et demandent un gros travail. Elles représentent le « potentiel physique » du bateau et sont donc top secret.
