Adjustments
Post by iconPost by LaughingSallyLRT | 2019-12-11 | 00:15:26

My question is. By making a 1 to say 5 degree trim adjustment, is there a time penalty? Also what are the time penalties for a tack or gybe?

Thank you LaughingSally

No time penalty for a course change, until you tack or gybe.
The same time penalty below also applies for a sail change though.

The penalties normally depends on the boat (they are coded in the boat characteristics), but so far, they always have been the same, which is:

For a Tack, a Gybe, or a SailChange, the penalty is a 50% speed during:
- 300 seconds if you don't equiped you boat with the Pro Winch,
- 75 seconds otherwise.

If you happen to have 2 or 3 of these penalties at the same time (you tack + change the sail at the same time for instance), they are cumulated, which means that your speed falls to 25% of its normal speed for the same amount of time (which is better than having 2 full penalties of 50% overall).

Here is an extract from the boats raw polars data:
   "winch":{
"tack":{
"stdTimerSec":300,
"stdRatio":0.5,
"proTimerSec":75,
"proRatio":0.5
},
"gybe":{
"stdTimerSec":300,
"stdRatio":0.5,
"proTimerSec":75,
"proRatio":0.5
},
"sailChange":{
"stdTimerSec":300,
"stdRatio":0.5,
"proTimerSec":75,
"proRatio":0.5
}

Excellent thank you for clearing that up.
