Post by iconPost by piet | 2010-04-24 | 08:24:45

Hello,\I'm completely fresh on this site. My first impression is that zezo.org is very helpful. My question is that I dont't see difference in the sailadvice between user without or with prosailoptions.
Second question
When I enter my boats name it doensn't appear anywhere?
Thanks for the remarks

Piet

The difference in pro/classic polars is less than 0.5 knots and may or may not result in great difference in the suggested route, depending on weather conditions. You should be able to see how the isochrones shift slightly when checking the option.

The boat name does not work for a long time now, since the game owners prohibited automated data access to their server by third party tools. I will replace it with some more useful one of these days.

Thanks for your clear answers. I found the option between the classic/pro sails.
Regarding the boat's name, we'll see in due time.
A lot of success with your helpful site

I am curious why zezo suggests I use a Jib when I have selected Pro sails. I don't have the exact wind conditions or position but at one point it recommended the jib, when clearly a LS would be better. Also now it has recommended the jib when Y1 would be the correct choice. Other parts of the chosen route indicate the various choices of LS or Y1.
Here is an example.
On the screen my start pos was 74 22W 21 38N. Winds are 3.2 79.
Suggestion on the screen is jib, to give 4.0 Kt at heading 331, but clearly in the game to get 4.0 you need to use Y1, Jib gives you 3.8.
Weird.

That's ... let's call it known bug. The optimum sail is not calculated for the full polars, and that creates problems in certain conditions. The newer games don't really need that because the Auto sail does the job, but is problem for Clipper.

BTW there are certain crossover points in the polars where the classic sails are in fact faster than the Pro version, but that's not usually the case.
