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),

where:

"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
USSACP
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!!

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.
