Thanks dude! No, my time was just around the course, I used the datapoints/times just before and just after the 1st mark where my track overlapped. As for the course, virtual marks might be harder, especially if you're not used to them.....and also easily verifiable in the data. I'm game for at least two virtual and will move one of mine and send you a new location. Now for the fun - I obviously missed one of my virtual marks...even though I claim to have made the real mark....who's to say? So, for all entries, the track must make all the marks in the data....meaning my entry may be deemed non-complaint. No matter how you do it...some courses will be easier than others...people just have to live with that. This is supposed to be fun, right?

Cool - thanks. I've updated the rules accordingly.

Just get me the new coords and I'll tweak your course. At the end of the day, you're right - it's about fun. But it's gotta be KINDA hard so we can smack talk each other!

The GPS margin of error will be interesting. You want to shave it close, but you've gotta clear that mark.

I'll leave your run up in the leader board for now. You knocked me out of the lead - and I had a bit of shave myself (going around the mark the wrong way). So what the hell?

If you use the virtual mark and GPS, error will never come into play...GPS contains the mark truth data and your measured location will be what it says...if it sez you made it, you made it.

now of course, when I reset my virtual mark I'll put it inside my current run......just so I can claim it counts. LoL.

You've got a Catalina 27? You should be able to get around your course in under an hour on a good day.

smack on!

Patuxent MD mark #3 has been changed to a virtual mark.
The new location is: N38 18.605 W76 28.060

I see in google earth you reloaded the kml file and it defaulted back to metric. The data gets generated on each import of the gpx file and uses the defaults of google earth...so you should change the defaults to make it english (if that is what you want).
It's in Tools:Options:3D View:show elevation:feet,miles

Heh-heh. Dude, you've never seen me sail! I suck!

But...

"I'm getting better".


PS - Thanks for the tip on the units. I'll try the import/export again. And I'll get your mark fixed up.

Another GR course added by Ishmeal over at SA:

Quote:
I did this in Sea Clear, so it should be good. Looks like good clean fun.

A. 48,39.925 N, 123,22.939 W
B. 48,39.198 N, 123,20.971 W
C. 48,37.935 N, 123,21.653 W

Hope this works, anyhow...
It's now up on the site and he's running it this weekend.

I'm just glad Canada's picking up the slack here for the rest of the world. I was afraid it was going to be US leading the way.

And hey, Oz, what the hell? Nothing from you blokes?

Shameful.

arrr, not beaten the hour mark yet!

Did a couple runs around the course this afternoon, winds were a lot nicer (8-12 from the SE). Not a repeat of last week, but ok. Wind was very shifty and light near the west shore...made for a difficult tack back to the finish.

Run 1 1:12:02
Run 2 1:08:13

Still working for that elusive sub hour time.

DUDE! YOU'RE SLOWING DOWN! And starting to sail like me. Heh-heh.

But adding only 5 minutes to your original time in 8-12 is impressive. I still really suck at going fast in light winds.

We were out today in 15-20 but didn't run the course (had some friends in from out of town).

I'll snag that sub-hour. Just wait pal!

A couple of new courses from the dudes at SA. One in BC and two more in the Chessie...

CHECK IT OUT!

And another on the way for MDR.

George - dude, you've got to get a course up for SF before some other mook does.

And where the hell are the Aussies? Shameful! The EU I can understand. Their money's going in the crapper. But Australia? The sailing capital of the world? Shameful.
