Appendix C: glossary of terms


AWA

Apparent Wind Angle, in degrees.


AWS

Apparent wind speed, in knots.


BAT

Battery voltage, in volts.


BSP

Boat Speed, in knots. Boat-relative.


BSP%

Boat speed percentage. Boat-relative. Computed as follows: 100 * BSP / polar-BSP(TWS, TWA). In words: the boat speed relative to the polar boat speed known for the current TWS and TWA, in percentages.


COG

Course over ground, in degrees.


DEP

Depth, in meters.


FLC

Forestay load cell, in tons.


HEL

Heel, in degrees.


PIT

Pitch, in degrees.


SOG

Speed over ground, in knots.


RAK

Rake, in degrees.


RUD

Rudder, in degrees.


TGA

Target true wind angle, in degrees. Boat-relative.


TGB

Target boat speed, in knots. Boat-relative.


TGH

Target heel, in degrees.


TGK

Target rake, in degrees.


TGW

Target apparent wind angle, in degrees. Boat-relative.


TGR

Target rudder, in degrees.


TWA

True wind angle, in degrees. Boat-relative.


TWD

True wind direction, in degrees.


TWS

True wind speed, in knots.


VMG

Velocity made good, in knots. Boat-relative.


VMG%

Velocity made good percentage. Boat-relative. Computed as follows: 100 * VMG / polar-max-VMG(TWS). In words: the VMG relative to the polar's max upwind or downwind VMG known for the current TWS, in percentages.
