Hi JB,

I do get penalized when I change the number of cranks. It's very easy to test, as you see the results instantly.
I'm just experimenting as many of you are doing ;)

'zig-zag' reminds me of BWR suggestions to sail for an hour 20 degrees to the wind... Always it was the router that within the time-limits it calculated the route could not find a tack-solution..

when I look into the qtvlm course I see many very small zig-zags where the routing comes with twa 144 and 10 minutes later twa -144 and again 10 minutes later twa 144. (gybes here)

Maybe playing with the time-setting/reckoning will help?

Good morning.

Please, what is the:

1 - qT version you are using;
2 - relation between your "crank" and minutes (exemple:"#1" crank" = "1 minute"?) ?

Thank you.

Hi JB,
I use 5.3-7-patch2 (I know you use an earlier), but maitai suggest in his answer of 02.07 - 08.53 to put in a number of cranks so qtVlm won't be able to gybe for a specified time. 15 cranks for 15 minutes etc. I change this a bit depending of the wind speed.
Try it yourself!

Congratulation on yesterday :)
Viva Skovser.

Thank you.

After all what was said about the Portuguese team and, especially, what was premeditatedly done to CR, I’m going to abstain from any comment and only hopping someone will get an humbling lesson.

Back to qT.
Well, till I fully understand what were the qT alterations I don’t intend to make any further update. Also, as matter of reciprocal respect, I’ll quietly wait someone responsible from qT to explain.

Thank you again.
Sail Fair.
Sure - I understand ;)
Have a nice summer .....

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
