    I tried to run the 5.8.0-64 version on my

    openSUSE 42.3 (x86_64)
    4.4.120-45-default kernel

    and got an

    /usr/local/lib/qtVlm/qtVlm
    Segmentation fault (core dumped).

    5.7.4-64 runs without any problems.

    FYI: I got an Segmentation fault when I changed from 5.4.1 to 5.4.2 on my linux system.

    Deleting the .qtVlm directory in my homefolder solved the problem.

  • Re: Sailors with routers
    Board » General Discussion
    We need some more groups, not just routers and non routers ;) Whats about guys like me, who start a race without a router but bring in a router in the middle of the game and end the race without any router? Is it allowed to start in the nonrouter group if i run a router but ignore its output? Who will control that? I just wonder that most of the critics about routers came from folks that never used a router. Do you really think you can start an ocean race with your router, make your DC´s and thats it. After your 3 week vacation you will in the top ten? Thats a nice dream! Test the routers and you will change your mind that routers gives you an automatic top ranking. BTW, even in real sailing its a good idea to use uptodate tools.
  • Re: Performance loss
    Board » Technical Discussion
    "or should we spend some time on an intermediate performance system as "quick fix"?"

    If some time means some hours, we should do the "quick and dirty fix". As i said in my previous posting, let all the calculations as it is and set a hard limit for the max. performance drop. that would at least eliminate the worst impacts of our current perf system.

    Today i sailed 2 runs with a fast boat in the Atlantic Circle and tried to beat the performance drop system and it seems to work. A 3 step tacking, like from 45 twa to -5 twa, -20 twa and -45 twa may be faster then a normal tacking from 45 twa to -45 twa. The same with gybing. Gybe to the slowest possible speed to minimize the performance loss. Anything will be better than a 34kn speed to 34kn speed gybe with a 17% perf loss at 94% performance.

    A nice tactical aspect, but im sure this isnt what the developers had in mind when they wrote our current code.

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
