Version 3.0 is now available.
Version 3.0.3 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights. I still need to work out how to bring the grid back in the lakes, but the islands are now visible. This version has a few new features. described in the documentation.

Version 3.0.4 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights with grids now visible.
Version 3.0.5 now really fixes the map polygon rendering problem with the Lake Superior Lights.

For the fix to work, in any of your race folders, you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

This version has a couple of new features that are not yet documented. You can toggle the DC text on and off, and toggle the wind barbs on and off. Hover on the button to see what they do.
There were still a few problems in 3.0.5 with polygons not being visible. The routine to change the polygon direction (clockwise / anti-clockwise) was not working. Version 3.0.6 fixes this problem.

Remember, for the fix to work you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

There is a problem in 3.0.6 for a race straddling 180E where the new libraries I'm using were forcing the longitude to be between -180 and 180. This in turn caused the Mercator projections to fail. Version 3.0.7 fixes this problem.

For the fix to work you must delete race_1098.map if that file exists in the race folder maps directory and then restart AGL.

Sorry - mea culpa!
That should be Hi Kipper

Hi Svein, did you get this working? Looks like Java is not installed correctly.
There are a few problems with the maps as stored on the server which have manifested themselves in this race. I have been meaning to clean up the maps for a while and did that last night. maps_v2.zip which is here fixes the problems. To install theses maps, download maps_V2.zip and do the following
1. Close any running AGLs.
2. In your tile library, rename maps to maps.old
3. Unzip maps_V2.zip into your tile library folder. You should now have a maps and a maps.old folder in there.
4. Delete race_1104.map from the maps folder of your Melbourne to Hong Kong race folder
5. Restart AGL.
6. Delete maps.old

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
