Bluewater Racing is a set of tools for tactical and strategic planning of long-distance boat racing and voyaging.

1. Routes, waypoints, and polar data are stored as XML files or text files that you can examine and edit directly with your favorite text editor.

2. You can view the forecast time it will take to sail any given route you have constructed. Most other programs will only give you one approximate "best route," and won't tell you how long it will take to sail a different route of your choosing.

3. Besides giving you an estimated best route, the Bluewater Racing optimizer gives you additional information, such as a "routing tree", which tells you the best time to all the points in your travel region, and a "sensitivity analysis," which gives you an idea of how far afield from the best route you can sail, and still arrive in close to the fastest time.

4. You can work with multiple Grib files simultaneously, to generate a complete wind picture that combines extremely accurate, short-range, small-scale forecasts at the start of your race, with long range, larger scale forecasts for weeks later at the end of your race.

5. Boat polar files can include data for motor sailing, allowing travel time estimation for power boats, or yachts that will use power when the winds are light.

6. BLUEWATER uses high quality, free, publicly available data from academic and government sources, including:

7. The GUI is written in Tcl/Tk, a popular and powerful scripting language. If you have some programming skill and inclination, you can directly manipulate Grib and Route files via simple Tcl scripts, using a command shell connected to BLUEWATER.
