Actual speed and Zezo???
Post by iconPost by Orcaman | 2009-09-29 | 09:36:45

Hi Cvetan, for a while now actual boat speed is averaging 2-3 knts less than is indicated on Sailing Simulator. Is there a quick fix? I know 'No Going Back' had the same problem then it came right and mine has come right for a little while then back to being off-set.
I have beers organised in Mauritania!

Cheers,

Andrew(Orcaman-Zoot 111)

Hi,

Are you sure you were at the exact conditions suggested by the simulator - wind speed and TWA?

Sometimes the game interface displays delayed data after wind updates and at wind cell borders, so you get the impression that you are sailing at different wind angle for a while. And in low winds even small differences in TWA make big difference in boat speed.

Hi again, exact co-ordinates were 14 29 and 27 12, TWA 140*, heading 231*. SS showed I should have been doing 8,1 knts but actual was only 6,5 knts. A week or so back it was still fine, I haven't changed anything even methods are the same.
You been sitting at 160ish for a while now, expecting a breeze soon I hope?

Cheers,

Orcaman

hi
maybe , since on the top of the map there are the 3 games , clipper, mini, istambul, you are watching the wrong map.
i say this because some time i watched istambul . the boat are different.
ciao

Hi Paco, I had noticed that in the beginning I always(I think)chose the Clipper for the Clipper race etc but now you have me thinking that maybe I was just being to bloody lazy to change!
Hehe, making sure I'm selecting 'Clipper' and everything's on target....now to just get in Cvetan's slipstream.....

Cheers,

Orcaman (Duh!)

I guess it's a problem with the coordinates. It would suggest that 1 minute to the west at 14 30.

I can make the boat names work, but am not sure if it's worth, because MP will probably block it again sooner or later.

Th eastern group will probably gain the lead within a day, so I expect to make it to the top 10 in the next 24 hours, but there are 3300 more miles left to Rio. The route choice seems good so far, but the weather in the Intertropical Convergence Zone (Dolsdrums) is quite unpredictable, so you never know for sure.

Big Bird doing great in 24th position!
