Great guys :-) but what about the port for brainaids NMEA proxy? It's automatically set to 5010, but I'm shure I cant use the same port if I have 2 or 3 races to run simultaniously, or what?

Viva all.

Installed the new qT version (5.3.9) and the only big difference I’ve noticed was the Polar display bug that was solved.

Still remaining the old problems of:

1 - Over decimating waypoints during the “Simplifying” process;
2 - Increased ETA after the “Simplifying” process;
3 - Idem, after “Optimizing”;
4 - Tacks/gybes times under the specified times in the “Boat settings” menu.

There’s no other way to say it.
Again frustrating, because it takes almost the same time as the routing calculation to correct all the bad “curves” generated after the “Simpl./Opt” processes.
Sail Fair.
I'm trying to understand what 'simplifying' means. If it's deleting poi's that are within a certain margin not leading to a different heading then indicated by the surrounding poi's then this simplifying would just cause less poi's. This is not the same as a decreased ETA. If you then optimize these simplified poi's series I can imagine that this optimization of 'errors' brought in by the simplification again can do unexpected things with ETA.

Why would you try to 'simplify' JB.
Could you not first 'optimize' and then 'simplify' the exported csv by yourself?
deleting same TWA's and or same headings?

I'm trying to get a better understanding of what a router does. Hence these questions.

Simplifying has 2 modes: optimum and maximum. Optimum keeps more points and is slower to run. Maximum will try hard to remove a maximum number of points. Maximum mode might even increase slightly ETA.

If "optimum" looses time (ETA) then it's a bug. Please provide necessary information to fix it since I didn't succeed to reproduce it.

Also explain and provide examples for the "time to tack" issue your are mentioning.
Beware a new qtVlm version is due in the coming days. To avoid frustration again better provide some more info on existing problems, or they will stay as they are once more ;)
Viva all.

Tomorrow is holiday here. So, next day i'll send you examples Phillipe.

Big hug.
Sail Fair.
A new (short) beta version has been released (http://www.virtual-winds.org/forum/index.php?/topic/7575-qtvlm/&do=findComment&comment=269357). Please try to test it before release.
Viva Philippe.

Bon jour.

E-mail sent with first tests results.

A Big Hug.

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2024


Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April which we always like to celebrate with a race through the Stockholm Archipelago from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to his mooring at Baggensfjärden. Traditionally also, like other celebrations this time of year, this feast has been “moveable”, so on this occasion we will be racing on a Wednesday in one of our latest high-performance 40-footers, the Carkeek 40. Please join us then for this always tricky 30nm race. Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
