Love the new extended predictors. Thanks @ij.

One small suggestion: Hourly indicators are open circles. Perhaps fill every 6-hourly circle to make a large dot. This would help in interpreting the longer predictors.

The longer predictors will be really helpful when training up those new to SOL. The curly-whirly patterns can be very instructive.
I really like @Zorba's idea of merging the 'steering' and 'DC' tabs. Maybe allow for 8-10 lines of DCs bacause if anyone is using more then they are probably using other tools to generate them.

It would also help to be able to set an actual time rather than just a delay period.
A big thank you for all the improvements @ij.

A couple very minor features in the boat ranking list I sometimes found useful in the flash version:
1) Ability to change the width of the columns, i.e. Name.
2) Return to the same boat ranking location.  For example, in the main (or custom) list, after moving the list down, the boat at the top is #5 (not #1).  Then, after returning to the list, #5 is still at the top.
Stable version of the client was updated today (2020-10-05). Long list of changes:

- Longer predictor (up to 48h, see settings)
- Relocate weather navigation buttons next to each other
- Month is now textual in date instrument to avoid interpretation ambiguities
- Thicker line for the downwind (when wind cursor lines are in use)
- Improved visibility of some text fields on map (to avoid unreadable mess when TWS/TWD values are enabled)
- 10m x 10m box to show scale when using extra zoom (can be disabled in settings)

- Improve ranking tab sort order, sort secondarily based on ranking
- Ranking tab includes DBL column for fleet races (please don't report those minor inconsistencies in the numbers, it's not a bug in the client)
- Added "race boundary" labels to help newcomers
- Use white text for instruments in night/dark mode
- Remove duplicated labels when the same mark is used more than once for the race course
- Limit TWS contours density with far-away zoom levels to improve performance


- Coordinate instruments obey the coordinate format in settings
- Prevents another fleet boat from showing up as own fleet boat
- Fix boat key (boat label on map) wrap issues
- Various clock synchronization improvements that are triggered if local clock is off by more than 2 minutes from the time on the server
Great update. People (including me) like the long predictor line.
Just a small suggestion:
1- I don't think there is any need to display the small 15 minute dots beyond the first 6 (or 12 hours). I would even go to display only one dot every 3 (or 6 hours) after the first 6 (or 12 hours), that will make it easier to see. Now it becomes like one very thick line on zoom outs.
Some people seem to ask even longer predictor. While it probably doesn't have much use (other than see expected upcoming wind variability), why not give them 72 or 96 hours, as long as it can be chosen in the options... For SOTP solers it may be useful in at least some races.

agree with Zorba777, and i do sail SOTP al the time.. let us try it out, if its not to much a hassel..
Do it today.
Hi all,

I've just updated the dev version with lots of changes. It is possible to enable DC-aware predictor already, however, there are a few caveats. The DC-aware predictor does not consider performance losses at turns correctly. Initial performance is consider correctly like previously, however, when firing any DC, the performance gets beamed up to 100% and remains there for the remaining predictor length. In addition, the calculation only runs with 30s accuracy wrt. boat movement.

There is now BBQ warning sound and a few new ruler related buttons that were requested.

Some changes are (should be) user invisible library updates but they might introduce new problems (or bring back vanishing fleet problem which has caused me to hold back one particular library update).

Ciao ij, one question: would it be possible to extend the Isochrone Calculator to 168 hours as you have already done for the Predictor(s) length?

Thanks.
Carlo ALberto

Isla St George Sprint 2022
The Bass Islands, in western Lake Erie, are a mere couple of miles west of the southernmost boundary of Canada. In this 21nm PYOC sprint, we will set off from East Harbor in our RC 44s and leave North Bass Island (historically Isle St. George) to port before quickly returning to East Harbor.

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

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!
