  • Re: WANTED: Testers new client
    Board » General Discussion
    I am user testing the new client. I would like the option to not have the night time effect, to have a sound when the new weather arrives and to be able to use the ruler to produce a Great Circle as we could with the old client. Otherwise it seems to work just fine.

    I don't know how to do that from brainaid but it is possible to load marks from a gpx file that agl generates.

    @Bimmer,
    Are you sure you want to use AWS for sign of TWA? I think TWA now will get always the same sign.

  • converting qtvlm-route to brainaid dc-tool
    Board » Technical Support
    skippers,
    Concerns QtVlm version 5.8-9
    If you export a QtVlm-route to csv to generate values for brainaids dc-tool you will see that QtVlm has inserted some new columns.
    COG is found now some columns to the right.

    If you use your 'old' convertor now you get knots in stead of degrees you expect.

    greetings
    LacSareno

  • ggr-leg 2
    Board » General Discussion
    <sol> finished ggr-leg2.
    <sol>skipper noticed something funny.
    <guest> seems to be at 2 positions in leg2.
    one @jachtclub scheveningen, Netherlands
    and the other @start ggr-leg2.
    That is in the android client. It changes to "Mark Slats" if I use the browser-flash-client.

    Could/would anyone give <sol> and <guest> back the predictor-line? Both boats are out of competition. Position -1 or 9999. Why does it hurt so much to restore all <sol> properties to normal. Would only be position 9999, -1 and "no chat" possibilities not enough to fullfill SYC's original purposes?
    Would that hurt anything or anyone in the SYC?

  • Re: sailing in meta virtual winds in christmas to christmas
    Board » General Discussion
    Thank you Rainbowchaser for repairing my hyjacking a thread instead of opening a new thread.
    I did read the in-race message which you repeated here with some extra's.

    I do remember this happening sailing <sol> in the 2017 editon of the xmas-xmas.

    I think this did not happen in the 2016 edition (I sailed her then too to the finish)

    So I wonder if there are records of the changes made in the racing engine and/or in the user-interface that could be rolled back to the healthy 2016 situation.

    Apart from that I sailed <sol> into nomans-land because I expected to be stopped as the "predictor-line" was broken off at the grib-border.

  • sailing in meta virtual winds in christmas to christmas
    Board » General Discussion
    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread Why not Route du Rhum ? .
    I started <sol> in christmas to christmas and sailed her due east.
    I thought she would stop at some point. No wind, no grib, no drift --> no speed seemed a logical conclusion.

    To my big surprise she still is going. At the moment close hauled but in general cog 90.

    If you put the mouse cursor anywhere in the blank no indication of wind angle or windspeed.

    Thought it miraculous enough to share it here.

    Lacsareno

    on 2nd thought..
    there must be a grib part there but it is invisible.

    in the android client the sailing-world is bordered to kind of negative image of flash-client bordered area.

    end of rant.

Current Races:

Return from Lindisfarne 2019
In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Silverrudder 2019
Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 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 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2019
