Please don't post my email on a public forum...
Sorry maitai. I've deleted it.
Wont happen again :-)

PS. I've sent you an email too!
No problem. Not that my email is such a big secret, but spam-robots are annoying sometimes ;)
About the "jigsaw" routing paths.

When the size of the "jigsaw" is … a whole country length, something is not good, no?

(Pls see attached picture)
Sail Fair.
What does your route details tell you?
Have you done the simplification and optimizing of the route?
Is this pic a mixture of QT and BLUEWATER?

PS: Dont expect an answer from maitai. He's on vacation for the next 2½ weeks. ;.)

Dear Bimmer

Everybody knows you are, probably, one of the greatest qT users, if not the best.
IMHO it is vital to not overuse the “radio frequency”, especially, for posing questions that can/should be answered by each self, using just for that purpose something that God gave us all: gray matter.
So, I’m going to reply you with another question: what do you think?
(I’m going also to help you with another question and a suggestion: Is it possible after the Simpl./Opt. processes to get any drawing of the Isochrones?
Now the suggestion: read again my qT wish list #3).

Bee well.

Hi JB,
To avoid short jigsaw courses, go into Boat, Boat Setting, set a check-mark in Tacks & Gybes and try and increase the crank setting. It works for me.

Viva Skovser.

Thank you for your tip and the following came from what i understood from qT talks.

The number of cranks you have, #10, defines the period of time for recovering to full Polar Performance from a downgrade value that you pre-defined as ..."100%".

So, what happens in your rooutings?
You don't get any Polar Performance penalty in any boat manouveur (tack/gybe) because you are using "100%" as the figure for the downgraded Polar Performnce. If you put #10 or #100 cranks is redundant.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

If you solved the jigsaw problem I'm curious how you manage it.

Mind you that I'm still using the qT version released before maitai went for holliday. Didn't made any update since then.

Thank you.

Adriano's Brazil Run 2021
Adriano, who sails the SOLship batatabh, together with all his Brazilian friends bids you welcome to this amazing 300nm race in SOL's Albin 79 along their country's beautiful coastline. The race starts in Guanabara Bay, mistakenly considered a river mouth by its first explorers in January 1502, resulting in the settlement on its shore being named January's River (Rio de Janeiro). After passing Rio's iconic Sugar Loaf, the course takes racers along the north coast of the beautiful Ilha Grande to a turn for home at Ilhabela (another 'beautiful island') and a finish off the famous Copacabana beach!
