Includes theoretical boat speed and heeling angle for every true wind speed and true wind angle combination, along with the associated upwind and downwind VMGs; i.e., velocity made good against the wind direction. Also known as a boat performance table and polars. See also: isochrone and velocity prediction program. Compare to: sail crossover chart.
