    @kroppyer

    It's just been fixed. Talked to someone in chat, "hmm", who said AAhumm ;)

    Works again :)

    @K3
    I suppose the puffin proxies run on linux then :)
    Classic usually works, but broke today.

    OK, classic client now also fails.
    No working client anymore for me. 64 bit Linux firefox. beta=true doesn't help.

    Update:
    Seems to work in Chrome. Chrome has a built-in flash player version 12.0.0.41. Firefox only has the "standard" linux version 11.2.202.335. So this issue appears to be related to the flash player version.

    @Jeroen nope, no show.
    I've looked and saw messages like this on the net going back to 2008. Looks like generic flash on linux fail. So what else is new.
    When does development start on an HTML5 client ? ;)
  • Re: ???? whats this
    Board » Technical Support
    Not sure if I ran the beta client before. I seem to remember seeing it, but that may have been on a different machine. Either way, it was some time ago.
    I cleared flash and browser cache, but it doesn't help. Running flash 11.2.202.258 on linux amd64.
    The classic client does work.

    I also get RSL errors and error #2046. This http://bit.ly/Vewkx0 post suggests a signing error as well.
    Is this an issue with the new client? How can I use the 'classic' client? Looking forward to starting leg 4 later today. If I can!!!

    edit:
    ah, found in another post: /?version=classic

    OK, found some time :) and created a script to parse the addviso xml files and 'enrich' the results with data from the grib files.
    I will try to come up with a least squares fit for curves to match the data. Anyone know good basis functions for this?
    I am curious how this will turn out. The data doesn't look particularly 'neat'. I attached some plots.
    @Tarco. I'll have a look at your file as soon as I have some results of my own.
  • Re: MOD70 polar development

    I've made the following approximation for the krys map:
    lat = -2.855E-7 * x^2 - 0.002296592 * x + 69.251568
    lon = 0.008093847 * y - 150.31126
  • Re: MOD70 polar development

    Ah thanks, was hoping I could avoid having to figure out the transformation from map coords to lat/lon, but since you did it as well I guess that's the way to go. Will do that then :)

    Thanks as well for your results so far. "Featureless" would not really surprise me for this kind of boat.
    I am not an expert, but the narrow hulls will likely have a boring resistance curve and at the speeds they do, they'll pretty much have just one sail configuration for any true wind angle: close-hauled :D
    ..as well as high lift/drag ratio's -> low angles of attack -> linear performance

    The track logs of the races I found contain position data that is already transformed to the addviso maps, it seems.

    Does anybody know where to find lat,lon positions for the Krys and European tour races?
  • Re: MOD70 polar development
    Board » General Discussion
    I'll have a go at creating the polars as well and maybe we can compare or average later.

    Will probably have some time during christmas :)

    Data and results will go here

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.

Silverrudder 2020
Sailonline welcomes you to the fifth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2020 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape (First) 27 be a match for the real fleet's 17 Seascape 27?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2020

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
