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.

Current Races:

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
