HI, I am trying to learn, and right now I am unsure what the column factor means. And, is the column "Options" a guess, or is it facts?

Factor - The boat's current speed factor over a no-options boat.
Options - According to 'User Card' (must be retrieved manually by selecting the user/boat in the game UI).

To be more specific, 'Factor' is a speed multiplication factor which applies to the speed provided by the sail set (whether FP on not). It equals:
- 1.003 if you have the "hull" option: you will sail 0.3 % faster if your hull is continuously polished
- from 1.000 to 1.040 il you have the ‘foil’ option, which speeds up the boat above a given (wind) speed, according to twa. The % use of foils is shown in ‘Foils’ (from 0 to 100%). You will sail 4% faster if you have foils operating at 100%
So if you have both options, the maximum Factor is 1.04 * 1.003 = 1.0431 / the minimum is 1.003.
