OK, BFR Global 'Patuxent River Maryland'. Proposed course is around 2 club private beercan buoys and a virtual mark. Open water, lots of boats, active clubs in area with both small and big boat racing. Created the course in garmin mapsource, tweaked virtual coord in google earth to get 5.0nm even.

1. SMSA K 0.0 nm N38 17.799 W76 27.111 fixed club mark
2. BFRv 1.7 nm N38 18.577 W76 25.224 virtual mark
3. SMSA L 3.9 nm N38 18.550 W76 28.090 fixed club mark
4. SMSA K 5.0 nm N38 17.799 W76 27.111 fixed club mark

BFR Patuxent

K2

naah, not that quick....I still need to sail this course now. Maybe this afternoon.

Hey, I notice in your KML there is a table...what code are you using to generate that? When I just use mapsource to open in Google Earth and save as KML I get all the data, but no stats.......
-







Distance 10.3 km
Min Alt 179.000 meters
Max Alt 204.000 meters
Max Speed 66.6 km/hour
Avg Speed 8.3 km/hour
Start Time 2010-04-24T21:44:56Z
End Time 2010-04-24T22:59:46Z

Thanks!

I've been using the iPhone as our GPS with the GPS Kit app. I open the GPX in Google Earth - then export is a KML file for Google Maps.

I'm not really sure if it's the app that creates that data or Google Earth when it opens the GPX. It's pretty handy though.

It'll be interesting figuring out how to sync the files from different GPS devices. We'll get it figure out somehow.

ok, figured it out....google earth puts it in there depending on how you import. Nice day on the water this afternoon in front of the storms. Got back just in time.
I did round the fixed marks...if the tracks continue to be off around them I'll redo the points....but it's close to the GPS error.

Boat is a Tanzer 25, rates PHRF 180 - So I guess I'm in C class.

Time around course - 1:03:24

AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

You jerk! You beat me by 11:26!!!

What were the conditions (wind direction, etc.). And what sails? Jeez your line looks clean! ONE freakin' tack????

Here's a link to your run:

Akoni Rocks the House

I will update the standings grid - taking myself out of the lead...although you realize it cuts me to the core.

Oh yes - game on pal.

Winds were from the southwest, gusting to the low 20's. 1st leg was a downwind scream, no spinnaker, with a roundup when I got tagged by a big puff. Upwind was pretty much straight upwind, light chop, three tacks. Last leg was shielded by the windward shore, blown flat, but still wind in the teens. Main is a new Quantum laminate, jib was my old nasty sobstad dacron 100%. Agree, it was a great run.... I'll keep workin it to see if I can get better.

Where are the standings?

That's some fast sailing Kriz. Nice.

It looks like your entry and exit into the marina were "on the clock" as well. Am I seeing that right? If so, that means you were actually blazing around the course much more quickly than 1:03:24.

Here are the standings:

GR Standings

Let me ask you something...most of the other courses have only 1 physical mark. In thinking about it last night - we should probably make that a rule.

My thinking is that it's definitely more challenging to line up and round a virtual mark. And if every course has two of them - no one can whine about 1 course being "easier" than another.

Would you mind moving one of your marks a bit? I'll make the change to the rules page.

(PS - You know - now that I've said that, is the rule that ALL courses MUST have 1 physical mark? Ah, rules. Maybe it shouldn't matter?)
