  • Re: RSL/FLEX error when loading latest client - post HERE

    It's just been fixed. Talked to someone in chat, "hmm", who said AAhumm ;)

    Works again :)

    I suppose the puffin proxies run on linux then :)
    Classic usually works, but broke today.

    OK, classic client now also fails.
    No working client anymore for me. 64 bit Linux firefox. beta=true doesn't help.

    Seems to work in Chrome. Chrome has a built-in flash player version Firefox only has the "standard" linux version So this issue appears to be related to the flash player version.

    @Jeroen nope, no show.
    I've looked and saw messages like this on the net going back to 2008. Looks like generic flash on linux fail. So what else is new.
    When does development start on an HTML5 client ? ;)
  • Re: ???? whats this

    Not sure if I ran the beta client before. I seem to remember seeing it, but that may have been on a different machine. Either way, it was some time ago.
    I cleared flash and browser cache, but it doesn't help. Running flash on linux amd64.
    The classic client does work.

    I also get RSL errors and error #2046. This http://bit.ly/Vewkx0 post suggests a signing error as well.
    Is this an issue with the new client? How can I use the 'classic' client? Looking forward to starting leg 4 later today. If I can!!!

    ah, found in another post: /?version=classic

    OK, found some time :) and created a script to parse the addviso xml files and 'enrich' the results with data from the grib files.
    I will try to come up with a least squares fit for curves to match the data. Anyone know good basis functions for this?
    I am curious how this will turn out. The data doesn't look particularly 'neat'. I attached some plots.
    @Tarco. I'll have a look at your file as soon as I have some results of my own.

    I've made the following approximation for the krys map:
    lat = -2.855E-7 * x^2 - 0.002296592 * x + 69.251568
    lon = 0.008093847 * y - 150.31126

    Ah thanks, was hoping I could avoid having to figure out the transformation from map coords to lat/lon, but since you did it as well I guess that's the way to go. Will do that then :)

    Thanks as well for your results so far. "Featureless" would not really surprise me for this kind of boat.
    I am not an expert, but the narrow hulls will likely have a boring resistance curve and at the speeds they do, they'll pretty much have just one sail configuration for any true wind angle: close-hauled :D
    ..as well as high lift/drag ratio's -> low angles of attack -> linear performance

    The track logs of the races I found contain position data that is already transformed to the addviso maps, it seems.

    Does anybody know where to find lat,lon positions for the Krys and European tour races?
  • Re: MOD70 polar development

    I'll have a go at creating the polars as well and maybe we can compare or average later.

    Will probably have some time during christmas :)

    Data and results will go here

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
