Love the new extended predictors. Thanks @ij.

One small suggestion: Hourly indicators are open circles. Perhaps fill every 6-hourly circle to make a large dot. This would help in interpreting the longer predictors.

The longer predictors will be really helpful when training up those new to SOL. The curly-whirly patterns can be very instructive.
I really like @Zorba's idea of merging the 'steering' and 'DC' tabs. Maybe allow for 8-10 lines of DCs bacause if anyone is using more then they are probably using other tools to generate them.

It would also help to be able to set an actual time rather than just a delay period.
A big thank you for all the improvements @ij.

A couple very minor features in the boat ranking list I sometimes found useful in the flash version:
1) Ability to change the width of the columns, i.e. Name.
2) Return to the same boat ranking location.  For example, in the main (or custom) list, after moving the list down, the boat at the top is #5 (not #1).  Then, after returning to the list, #5 is still at the top.
Stable version of the client was updated today (2020-10-05). Long list of changes:

- Longer predictor (up to 48h, see settings)
- Relocate weather navigation buttons next to each other
- Month is now textual in date instrument to avoid interpretation ambiguities
- Thicker line for the downwind (when wind cursor lines are in use)
- Improved visibility of some text fields on map (to avoid unreadable mess when TWS/TWD values are enabled)
- 10m x 10m box to show scale when using extra zoom (can be disabled in settings)

- Improve ranking tab sort order, sort secondarily based on ranking
- Ranking tab includes DBL column for fleet races (please don't report those minor inconsistencies in the numbers, it's not a bug in the client)
- Added "race boundary" labels to help newcomers
- Use white text for instruments in night/dark mode
- Remove duplicated labels when the same mark is used more than once for the race course
- Limit TWS contours density with far-away zoom levels to improve performance


- Coordinate instruments obey the coordinate format in settings
- Prevents another fleet boat from showing up as own fleet boat
- Fix boat key (boat label on map) wrap issues
- Various clock synchronization improvements that are triggered if local clock is off by more than 2 minutes from the time on the server
Great update. People (including me) like the long predictor line.
Just a small suggestion:
1- I don't think there is any need to display the small 15 minute dots beyond the first 6 (or 12 hours). I would even go to display only one dot every 3 (or 6 hours) after the first 6 (or 12 hours), that will make it easier to see. Now it becomes like one very thick line on zoom outs.
Some people seem to ask even longer predictor. While it probably doesn't have much use (other than see expected upcoming wind variability), why not give them 72 or 96 hours, as long as it can be chosen in the options... For SOTP solers it may be useful in at least some races.

agree with Zorba777, and i do sail SOTP al the time.. let us try it out, if its not to much a hassel..
Do it today.
Hi all,

I've just updated the dev version with lots of changes. It is possible to enable DC-aware predictor already, however, there are a few caveats. The DC-aware predictor does not consider performance losses at turns correctly. Initial performance is consider correctly like previously, however, when firing any DC, the performance gets beamed up to 100% and remains there for the remaining predictor length. In addition, the calculation only runs with 30s accuracy wrt. boat movement.

There is now BBQ warning sound and a few new ruler related buttons that were requested.

Some changes are (should be) user invisible library updates but they might introduce new problems (or bring back vanishing fleet problem which has caused me to hold back one particular library update).

Ciao ij, one question: would it be possible to extend the Isochrone Calculator to 168 hours as you have already done for the Predictor(s) length?

Thanks.
Carlo ALberto

Buenos Aires to Rio 2023

This year's second ARCH series race will run from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on a route designed by SOLer Vida_Maldita (under his former alias of zero) in 2013. This is a replica of a classic triennial race of 1200nm, first run in 1947. More information about this IRL race can be found here.
So, Bemvindo/Bienvenidos in this coastal classic and prepare your 90ft Monohulls well.

Up Helly Aa 2023
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. As is Sailonline's tradition, we shall be racing the 383nm from Aberdeen to Lerwick to (virtually) take part in the Up Helly Aa festivities there which take place for the first time since 2020 on Tuesday, 31 January. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
