RE: [Elite Owners Group] Polars for Elite 324

    It looks like brokers are pretty free with what they deem a 324. Looks like mine is a 32 after all. Thanks for your help. R. Bernard ... From: Bruce Taylor

      Its easy to tell the difference between the 32 and the 324. The 32 has a
      flush reverse transom and the 324 has a transom with a built in swim
      platform. We own a 324 and it is plastered with decals that say 324. I
      checked the us sailing web site and they do list polars for an Elite 32.
      Those figures should do the trick for either the 32 or the 32.4
      I am assuming that your boat has the 5' 7" keel and if so with the work
      that you have just done you will be very pleasantly surprised by the
      great preformance of these boats. They will, if properly sailed, preform
      well above their Phrf. We have raced our 324 quite a bit and have done
      very well in phrf fleets. The boat is very good in light air, and can
      also do well one the wind picks up. Keeping the boat on its feet in
      heavy air is very important. Good luck with your project.

      Hi Bruce,

      My boat came with an owners manual listing it as a 324. I have seen a
      1986 boat called an Elite 326. You're absolutely right about Kirie
      Yachts, their after sales support is non-existent.

      I have found polars for sale at www.ussailing.org. I will probably
      purchase them there. Since I have just peeled the bottom, faired the
      keel and hull, and epoxied, I want to make sure I'm getting the maximum
      from my boat.

      I have never seen polars for the boat. The Kirie folks in France don't
      ever respond if you have any sort of technical questions so good luck.
      If your boat is an 84 then its probably a 32 and not a 324. The 324,
      to
      the best of my knowledge was first produced in 1986. The 32 and the
      324
      are basically the same boat, except the waterline of the 324 is 25
      feet
      11 inches the 32 has a lwl of 24 feet 7 inches. The 324 is slightly
      heavier, about 225 lbs and its loa is 32.4 the 32 has a loa of 31 feet
      9
      inches. Phillip Harle designed the boat perhaps you could track him
      down. Good luck with your polar search

      Does anyone know where I can get polars for an Elite 324? I race
      my '84 and they would certainly help in judging performance.

      Thanks,

      When they were 32, they came with either a steel keel or lead keel. That will make a little difference too.
