That little screen is what I now get, I also don't get "Wx Inspector" with its very convenient isochrones- it says it takes too long to respond. What has happened to disrupt Agages programs?--it certainly isn't Agage!!!!!
As an SOTP "sailor", I found both of those programs very convenient to use. I don't, of course, know what the "router fiends" have found with what they use!!!!!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

Hello Bimmer.

I have just tried to start the OptimalAngles2.air, but I get an error while starting it. Is there a newer version than the one, linked in the first post in this thread ?
Hej Bissen

Have you installed Adobe Air?

If yes, try to unzip this attached file and click on the .exe file

So I am still slightly confused re Wx Inspector interpretation.

Having set a location of coordinates and clicking on the VMC button, should the boat course be the value under "bearing" or the value under "COG"?
antares - the bearing is a straight line from your boat to the target.
The COG or TWA is the course your boat should sail to get to the target.
But notice, the numbers in COG and TWA changes continuously.
Hi Bimmer

On the old flash SOL dashboard system I could press alt and click on the screen to copy a "location' and then paste this into the Optimun Angles tool. Is there something similar to do with the new client?

Cheers

George
Ah. I think I have solved my problem.
Its required to paste lat, long into the "location" box as normal.
It largely works the same but with a tweak, Alt left click on the mouse brings up a data point on the screen. Copy the lat long and paste into Opt Angles...BUT remove the degrees symbols!
Hi George,

Unfortunately Bimmer is no longer with us.

In the html client, the coordinate formatting can be changed to not include the degree sign through settings.

You might also want to check if client's built-in max calculator in "tools" (misc tab) is what you need. If you feel the calculator is lacking something from "optimal angles" features that would be useful for you, please let me know so I can see what I can do for the built-in tools.

The direct copy to clipboard is not something browsers want to freely allow due to security reasons, thus there is the POI step in between.

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
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.
