The plugin is a race management system along the line of expedition and decman. At the moment it handles starts and laylines. Routing is next.
I'd like to use as much of the built in functionality as possible though.
I am very interested in this effort, and I would like to help with testing at some point where you think it would be useful.
You may know that there are some other related efforts by Big Tom Sailing Dashboard
to get good performance sailing data readily available, and Dave Coweld has a TacknLayline
plugin that works under linux
and almost works under windows, but crashes last time I tried it.
You may already be aware that there are other excellent related plugins such as Weather_routing
by Sean and Polar_pi
by Konni enhanced and improved by Ptulp. Polauto is an excellet windows program for obtaining polars for your boat.
There seems to be a lot happening with sailing focused plugins which is great. Perhaps someday well will have a coordinated Sailing Suite.
