In general routing software generates an astronomical number of Displacement vectors (module unit is nm) where on top of their extremities it draws the so called Isochrones curves.

To have a slight idea on the numbers involved on this calculations and using the qT process/settings we have:

1 - 180 degrees of scanning angle;
2 - 3 degrees of angular step;
3 - 60 Displacement vectors in the first calculated minute;
4 - 60 + 60 x 60 = 3.660 Displacement vectors on the second calculated minute;
5 - 60 + 3.600 + 60 x 60 x 60 = 219.660 Displacement vectors on the third calculated minute and,
6 - so on, resumed in the following formula:

S (60 ^m),


"S" represents Summation starting in i = 1, 2, 3, ...., m;
"m" is minutes (integer number),
“^” is the power symbol.

As a sado-maso exercise try to use (only) the WX tool just to find out the best route for the first two minutes of race.


P.S.: You stil have time to make it for the next race in 2,5 days. Uppps.... maybe not because by then the the WF will be other.

I'll be sailing SOTP for this series, and will abide by those rules.
i'M always SOTP and no buddy sailor either.
SOTP for me please I dont have never and never will use a router hence I never do very well but its the taking part. Maybe it should be considered mandatory to take part ?? hard to impose I know but levels the playing field a bit Fair winds all the SOTP's
SOTP it is :-).

New to this site, but not to sailing
Cruzist will, as always. be sotp
SOTP---as usual! Rod
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
I will race SOTP!!

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
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 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!
