In general routing software generates an astronomical number of Displacement vectors (module unit is nm) where on top of their extremities it draws the so called Isochrones curves.

To have a slight idea on the numbers involved on this calculations and using the qT process/settings we have:

1 - 180 degrees of scanning angle;
2 - 3 degrees of angular step;
3 - 60 Displacement vectors in the first calculated minute;
4 - 60 + 60 x 60 = 3.660 Displacement vectors on the second calculated minute;
5 - 60 + 3.600 + 60 x 60 x 60 = 219.660 Displacement vectors on the third calculated minute and,
6 - so on, resumed in the following formula:

S (60 ^m),


"S" represents Summation starting in i = 1, 2, 3, ...., m;
"m" is minutes (integer number),
“^” is the power symbol.

As a sado-maso exercise try to use (only) the WX tool just to find out the best route for the first two minutes of race.


P.S.: You stil have time to make it for the next race in 2,5 days. Uppps.... maybe not because by then the the WF will be other.

Dear sol rulers

Make the fun even bigger and remove the predictorlines from all boats like you have done now for so long time for <sol>

I'll be sailing SOTP for this series, and will abide by those rules.
i'M always SOTP and no buddy sailor either.
SOTP for me please I dont have never and never will use a router hence I never do very well but its the taking part. Maybe it should be considered mandatory to take part ?? hard to impose I know but levels the playing field a bit Fair winds all the SOTP's
SOTP it is :-).

New to this site, but not to sailing
Cruzist will, as always. be sotp
SOTP---as usual! Rod
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
I will race SOTP!!

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.
