    Why not list the 15 races in chronological order, newest on top, and put the discarded ones in brackets. In that way we'll see which race will go out of the list next. It would be similar to Stenum's list, which I think looked quite good.

    Hi !
    i habe a question concerning the bonus points. Are there all races counted or only the races of the last 6 month ? I wonder how some sailors have more than 2000 bonus points ?

    Regards Stefan
    I agree with dirtrider that the calculation of participation points is very unclear at this moment. For instance, I now have 1813 points. How can this be if I should have 50 points per race? I think the calculation algorithm should be published.

    Regards Lars

  • Late registration for St Malo?
    Board » Technical Support
    I noticed in the race archive that the St Malo timed race is still open for registration, so I figured I would have another go at it. I registered ok, but when I start the client, the St Malo race does not appear in the Select Race list.

    Hi jakob

    I guess you have studied polar diagrams a lot more than I. Still I like to understand what I see. For instance, the diagram for the VO70 makes sence as I see it. When reaching at TWA 130, the boat speed will always increase as the wind speed increases. Still the lines cross when close hauled, which you might expect because of increase wind and wave resistance. So far so good.

    What I could not (and still cannot) understand is the feature in diagram for the 40 ft monohull at TWA 150 degr, where you have
    10 m/s > 10 knots
    12 m/s > abt 12,5 knots
    14 m/s > abt 12,8 knots
    18 m/s > abt 12,2 knots
    22 m/s > abt 13,5 knots
    In this case it's hard to imagine the behaviour of the 18 m/s line. Wind or wave resistance could hardly have this effect when reaching at 150 TWA.

    I understand the difficulties if you have to use delayed commands. Still I think that some more variation of courses would be nice. All offshore races are very much alike, so I think an archipelago race would be fun for a change.

    It's not a matter of choosing one or the other, I'd like both!

    Tks for your reply. However, an increased drag can only happen if the speed is increased. So, I'm afraid I'm still not convinced.
    Compare for instance the VPP on this site:

    I'm curious about the VPP diagram for the 40 ft monohull. At high wind speeds, the lines sometimes cross each other, meaning that when the wind is increasing, the boat speed will decrease. I have not seen this in other VPP diagrams and it seems very unexpected to me. How do you explain this?

    As a change from offshore races, where the reach legs are rather dull, it would be fun to do an archipelago race, perhaps Själland Runt or Augustimånen. Of course the maps are very coarse, but the tactics would still be a challenge.

    Great game!!!
