    Great work fixing the bug in delayed commands, and improving the presentation for low winds. Good developments too in other areas. It is becoming my main interface to the simulation. I just need to add a routing algorithm!

    Just wondering if the overlay used by sailonline for coasts (ie the often straight line approximation to fractal like coasts) is now missing from the maps? I am pretty sure it was there in .25 when I did the NZ Coastal classic as I ended up on the beach! but I can't see it now in .30 eg in RTW around Fernando de Noronha? I could be wrong, maybe it is in one of the other overlays now available in settings, but I couldn't find it?

    What IDE are you using to code btw? ADT/Android Studio or one of the many unsupported environments, also Java or another language? Are you using GIT to manage revisions?

    Regards

    Excellent work with the android app. Working well on minimal hardware : G2 running 4.1.2

    Note one bug, could not put in negative TWA in Delayed commands. OK in immediate commands.

    Looking forward to the next version. Being able to get a readout of wind from a selectable point on the map would be useful, difficult to see wind direction when less than 5kn.
    Thanks

  • Re: starting times?
    Board » General Discussion
    We NZ sailors can also suffer from unfortunate start/finish times.

    Maybe the solution is to have more international races so that everyone gets start times that fit their time zones. races in Australasia/Pacific could be

    Sydney to Hobart (Aus)
    Round NI (NZ) (2 handed) 4 races around North Island www.sanz.co.nz
    Coastal Classic (Auckland to Bay of Islands)
    Cook Strait Classic (Wellington to Marlborough Sounds (Ships Cove etc)
    Nelson race (Wgtn to Nelson)
    Tasman Race (New Plymouth to Mooloolaba)
    NZ to Fiji race
    etc

SOL's continuing tribute to AGage is the A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series. This race is Leg 3 of a 9-race series. Not a race goes by without the name of AGage appearing somewhere in race chat. We continue our running of this tribute circumnavigation of Australia in his memory. Leg 3 is a 630nm race from Hobart to Sydney.

Lisbon to Cape Town 2020
Our third OCC race in Q1 is also our first race of a special 4-race RTW series. Given that this leg 1 is taking us on a more than 5000nm passage from Lisbon to Cape Town, the betting has to be that the subsequent legs will be into the wind. Hopefully not in replicas of Ellen McArthurs Orange catamaran then!
