    Great work fixing the bug in delayed commands, and improving the presentation for low winds. Good developments too in other areas. It is becoming my main interface to the simulation. I just need to add a routing algorithm!

    Just wondering if the overlay used by sailonline for coasts (ie the often straight line approximation to fractal like coasts) is now missing from the maps? I am pretty sure it was there in .25 when I did the NZ Coastal classic as I ended up on the beach! but I can't see it now in .30 eg in RTW around Fernando de Noronha? I could be wrong, maybe it is in one of the other overlays now available in settings, but I couldn't find it?

    What IDE are you using to code btw? ADT/Android Studio or one of the many unsupported environments, also Java or another language? Are you using GIT to manage revisions?

    Regards

    Excellent work with the android app. Working well on minimal hardware : G2 running 4.1.2

    Note one bug, could not put in negative TWA in Delayed commands. OK in immediate commands.

    Looking forward to the next version. Being able to get a readout of wind from a selectable point on the map would be useful, difficult to see wind direction when less than 5kn.
    Thanks

  • Re: starting times?
    Board » General Discussion
    We NZ sailors can also suffer from unfortunate start/finish times.

    Maybe the solution is to have more international races so that everyone gets start times that fit their time zones. races in Australasia/Pacific could be

    Sydney to Hobart (Aus)
    Round NI (NZ) (2 handed) 4 races around North Island www.sanz.co.nz
    Coastal Classic (Auckland to Bay of Islands)
    Cook Strait Classic (Wellington to Marlborough Sounds (Ships Cove etc)
    Nelson race (Wgtn to Nelson)
    Tasman Race (New Plymouth to Mooloolaba)
    NZ to Fiji race
    etc

Current Races:

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
