    Just realized the circle maybe is of another color, just shows badly on my screen.

    I've not read through all the 11 pages of suggestions, so I may be reiterating some of them. However, two thoughts:
    One is simple, I believe
    A)When you use the course planner, the wheel or whatever it's called (the tool to lay out a new cc or twa) the effect of the new TWA is indicated in the Performance plot. Could the new "performance circle" (the small circle that indicates the new speed/twa) be indicated in another color than black, which is the color of the current speed/twa.? [In the next post I realise the color probably is different...]
    B)I agree that having the ability to use waypoints through the course makes it a bit too mechanical. However - and I believe this has been brought up earlier - alarms at certain long/lats or along lines of long/lats might be an alternative. Sound or email alerts (which could be mobile email of course). Could be implemented on server but maybe better as a client "GPS" with an email agent. Some development to be done, I believe, but: open up an interface to each boats long lat (pw protected) and let a 3rd party (not I!) do development.
    Just a late night idea.

    My feeling is that any irl yacht club would promote participation, so I don't have a problem with that (although it probably works against me).

    Just for the record, it's also important to ascertain that your screen resolution is lower than that indicated by the "max screen resolution" in the open GL tab in display properties. The max screen resolution seems to vary with the antialiasing settings. So either change screen resoltuion or the anti aliasing setting.

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

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. 😊
