Version 3.0 is now available.
Version 3.0.3 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights. I still need to work out how to bring the grid back in the lakes, but the islands are now visible. This version has a few new features. described in the documentation.

Version 3.0.4 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights with grids now visible.
Version 3.0.5 now really fixes the map polygon rendering problem with the Lake Superior Lights.

For the fix to work, in any of your race folders, you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

This version has a couple of new features that are not yet documented. You can toggle the DC text on and off, and toggle the wind barbs on and off. Hover on the button to see what they do.
There were still a few problems in 3.0.5 with polygons not being visible. The routine to change the polygon direction (clockwise / anti-clockwise) was not working. Version 3.0.6 fixes this problem.

Remember, for the fix to work you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

There is a problem in 3.0.6 for a race straddling 180E where the new libraries I'm using were forcing the longitude to be between -180 and 180. This in turn caused the Mercator projections to fail. Version 3.0.7 fixes this problem.

For the fix to work you must delete race_1098.map if that file exists in the race folder maps directory and then restart AGL.

Sorry - mea culpa!
That should be Hi Kipper

Hi Svein, did you get this working? Looks like Java is not installed correctly.
There are a few problems with the maps as stored on the server which have manifested themselves in this race. I have been meaning to clean up the maps for a while and did that last night. maps_v2.zip which is here fixes the problems. To install theses maps, download maps_V2.zip and do the following
1. Close any running AGLs.
2. In your tile library, rename maps to maps.old
3. Unzip maps_V2.zip into your tile library folder. You should now have a maps and a maps.old folder in there.
4. Delete race_1104.map from the maps folder of your Melbourne to Hong Kong race folder
5. Restart AGL.
6. Delete maps.old

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
