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.


Hi Huib,

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

It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
