    God afternoon all.

    Since one of the last qT revisions the "B" command disappeared.

    Pity, because it was very useful.
    Hope it can be implemented again.

    Viva John and all.

    Good morning.

    In relation to your question I think the right answer is "no".

    Anyhow, using the so called "WX Inspector" in this race and accordingly to its spirit , at least to me, is totally pacific.

    You should always know your boat Performance Targets, using or not anykind of weather routing software.

    Good afternoon SRC and all.

    For now, my suggestion isn't for a new race/s but, to use already established SOL ones to make a OD Series, using the TP52 boat.

    Off course, without prejudice for making new courses for this particular Series.

    What do you think?

    P.S.: I salute SRC decision for sailing the Van Isle 2018 race with this boat. Excellent idea.

    So it's "retro".
    Ok.

    I'll sail it like the first time I SOLed along.

    Good morning all.

    Routings made with the SOL GRIB and a WRF GRIB.

    The second one is faster by almost 2 hrs, keeping the path closer to the coast.

  • 40 Series - Ratings
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    Good morning all.

    I open a new thread related with boats "Ratings" to all who may be concerned, namely for the SOL 40 Series Scoring process.

    In first place I recommend all to have a reading on the following link:

    http://www.orc.org/index.asp?id=31,

    from ORC.

    Under ORC Scoring program the boats "Ratings" can be achieved in #4 different ways.

    As an example, for the PCS method (Performance Curve Scoring) there's already available (free) Software for calculating the "implied wind" and Corrected Times using a Performance Curve - link:

    http://data.orc.org/tools.php?c=pcs.

    If we gather some SOLers with a minimal expertise on handling this issue, I'm sure we can make it work for the 2019 40 Series.

    The word to You.

    Viva Jo and all.

    That's very easy to solve. Pls follow this steps:

    1 - Left Click one time on the top/right side boat - it will appear a new Window on the left side with the "Position" menu;

    2 - Just click on "Reset Trace"...

    et voliá, tous les lignes rouges went.

    Cheers.

    João/psail

    P.S.; if you left click a second time on the top/right boat the left menu window disappears.

    Always sad when one of us goes too soon for the final mark.

Current Races:

SWR 17/18 Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague
Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018
Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?
