I was wondering if anyone of you had already thought about integrating a racing
starting line guidance into OpenCPN
Basically you synchronize a race
timer with the official racecountdown then plot the starting line into OpenCPN
. And when you combine the race
timer with the virtual start line, the device measures your speed, bearing,and remaining time on the countdown timer. The program uses this data to indicate whether your boat will cross the start linebefore, after, or at the correct time to start the race.
Other nagivation systems like the Garmin
7400 already have this fancy (but handy) option and maybe some of you are working on this?
