Looked at NOR website. It has a feature that allows you to see events that have used it within 500 miles of a zipcode. None past, present, or future within 500 miles of us. None within 500 miles of 90210 (a number that sticks in my mind because I have children). None within 500 miles of other numbers I plugged in. This feature is not a good idea until it can show positive results. I have had my software guru (who also happens to be an electrical engineer, so you know he's not only thorough, but practical) look into Sailwave. He was impressed. He plugged in last year's results to show how computational errors are eliminated. He tweaked it so our Time on Time results would align with our local conditions. We've met to show RC members how simple it is to enter data and get results. We're hoping to get a laptop with Wifi so we can post results on the club website before the RC boat even gets back to the dock. We're planning to go with Sailwave.
