    Thanks SimeMali, Javakeda for the recent help in solving the winx issues. It is the only tool I use while playing this game unless my alarm, calculator, pencil and paper count. Good stuff!

    Last I knew all a Mini had was a working jib, code 0, large and small spinnaker.

    Thanks for the reply, again ;-)

    The Mini is a box rule, so there is no one polar and I have no data on any boat myself. I would think that rounding out the curve to weather to be a little more like a multi-hull would make SOL's polar at least a good bit closer to real. I am not so concerned about being an actual reflection, but the performance of this polar is just plain weird. In the mid range winds it is almost as if the boat had 2 head sails creating a dip in the curve. And I have never seen the dip of any polar at 40º TWA.

    Thanks for listening...........

    Board » Technical Support
    I just logged into the Inhaca RTI Sprint to set up my morning back up DC for the start and noticed the polars for the present wind. I am in 15.6 kts. wind and the optimum TWA to weather is 34º? Unless they have done some drastic changes to the class I don't recall a Mini ever being able to sail much better than 45º TWA. In 2005 Rodney Johnstone's proto design was built for the 2007 Mini Transat. It was probably the most weatherly proto built and could just get to 45º TWA These are reaching boats designed specifically for the route from France to Brazil.

    Anyway, I suggest checking into this. Probably too late for this race, but 34º is unrealistic to keep.

    I don't think I would want to do the Northwest Passage race via my Samsung Galaxy 4 Mini, but this is sweet. Thanks!

    Great, thanks.
  • Registration close for timed races
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    What exactly does that mean? You must log into the race before that time designated as registration close? Or that you must start the race? If I sign into a timed race before the registration close can I wait until some time after to actually start? I know I must finish before the race closes.

    I can make it work, count me in. Those showing up early can come do some practice sailing on the real Hirilonde. She will be moored in Wickford this summer.

    I notice that there are no ice gates or southern latitude boundary that we must observe. I don't know if this was the case for the real race, but it is now for all around the world races. I am not necessarily advocating that we should have such limitations, but if realism is something we are striving for then it may very well be that the best virtual course for this leg would be sheer suicide in real life. Just a thought. I will be reinforcing Hirilondë's bow for ice breaking just in case. ;-)

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
