first of all I would thank you for your wonderful work on the VRTool! As a real-life sailor with a technical / maritime background I'm very excited about the capabilities of this tool and the features especially with respect to weather routing!
While I was first setting up the vrtool I've read most of this forum and the corresponding wiki-pages. Everywhere I've read that due to their high resolution the full polaires from http://www.vrtoutoulz.fr are not supported by the weather routing in vrtool. That's in accordance with what I just read in
Actually I use vrtool with the full polaires (vendeeglobevirtuel_pro-full.csv). I don't experience any problems. My weather routing settings are:
- - isochrone interval 0.1 (larger intervals problematic in terms of calculation time)
- # of branches 55
- max. angle to target 160
- boat wake angle 35
- iso point spacing 0.1
Omar, can you give me a comment on this? I'm wondering why I can use the full polaires without problems while actually this is not advised. Will the reduced polaires give me more comprehensive results?
