Page: Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next Last

I want to propose some races to be race in Mini 6,50 boats like "Les Sables - Azores - Les Sables", do I have to post the boat's polars too?
SOL already has polars for a Mini 650.
:)
We have a polar for the mini650.

Last october we did the 'Poor mans race', a race in two legs from Charente via Madeira to Salvador Brasil.

So keep in mind that those 2 legs already exist in SOL (you don't need to remake them)

But of course, the race you proposed is slightly different... looking forward to your proposal!

(I am also a mini650 fan!)
my other boat is a kiteboard =)
Now that you mentioned (leg races) I have some more (newbie) questions about them:

1 - Should we post ONE kmz with all legs or separate them in several diferent races.

2 - How do the results work for those that are not members of SOL if the legs are considered diferent races. Do they keep there position from leg to leg? Restart every race?

(Sorry to ask, probably alot of SOL racers already know the answers, but I never raced a leg race before)
1. I prefer a separate kmz for each leg.

2. It is easy to create a separate ranking for a series of races. We did so for example for the 3 legs of the Bosphore - Bretagne Race (link at the bottom of right column). However, you need to join the SYC to be included in any ranking except the ones for individual races.

Thus, the message is: please join the SYC!
;)

Francois

Here we go again...

I need help to translate a traditional koordinate pos. N13"26.48´to the system Google Earth use.

Is just to divide 26 with 60 minutes and then divide 48 with 60 seconds?

Or does anyone have any better formula to convert my old pos. to N13.xxxxxx?

Is there a Polar for Linjett40 available?

I don´t know so much about sailing boats.
Is it possible to upload a picture of boat to the .kmz-folder in Google Earth?
You can change Google Earth coordinate system in Tools/Options
