That little screen is what I now get, I also don't get "Wx Inspector" with its very convenient isochrones- it says it takes too long to respond. What has happened to disrupt Agages programs?--it certainly isn't Agage!!!!!
As an SOTP "sailor", I found both of those programs very convenient to use. I don't, of course, know what the "router fiends" have found with what they use!!!!!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

Hello Bimmer.

I have just tried to start the OptimalAngles2.air, but I get an error while starting it. Is there a newer version than the one, linked in the first post in this thread ?
Hej Bissen

Have you installed Adobe Air?

If yes, try to unzip this attached file and click on the .exe file

So I am still slightly confused re Wx Inspector interpretation.

Having set a location of coordinates and clicking on the VMC button, should the boat course be the value under "bearing" or the value under "COG"?
antares - the bearing is a straight line from your boat to the target.
The COG or TWA is the course your boat should sail to get to the target.
But notice, the numbers in COG and TWA changes continuously.
Hi Bimmer

On the old flash SOL dashboard system I could press alt and click on the screen to copy a "location' and then paste this into the Optimun Angles tool. Is there something similar to do with the new client?

Cheers

George
Ah. I think I have solved my problem.
Its required to paste lat, long into the "location" box as normal.
It largely works the same but with a tweak, Alt left click on the mouse brings up a data point on the screen. Copy the lat long and paste into Opt Angles...BUT remove the degrees symbols!
Hi George,

Unfortunately Bimmer is no longer with us.

In the html client, the coordinate formatting can be changed to not include the degree sign through settings.

You might also want to check if client's built-in max calculator in "tools" (misc tab) is what you need. If you feel the calculator is lacking something from "optimal angles" features that would be useful for you, please let me know so I can see what I can do for the built-in tools.

The direct copy to clipboard is not something browsers want to freely allow due to security reasons, thus there is the POI step in between.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
