@tyhia The site is free for everyone. Registering or making a donation does not make any difference. Even I use exactly the same version as everyone else.

There is no way to get automated position because VR changed the game. You have to enter the numbers, then everything works.

Observing from another boat, I have verified that the penalty of 50% speed in tacks and gybes, without Winches Pro, isn't 300 seconds, but of 2 or 3 minutes.
I think it's 3 minutes.
Can someone confirm it?

It would be hard to check precisely. The run still runs in steps so if after 3 minutes it says half speed and after 5 it says full speed that could mean that the boat has actually has been slowed down for 5 minutes, but the next move will be full speed.

You could calculate the distances traveled, but that would also require precise times and wind speeds and polars.

So it's not impossible, but is a lot of effort.

The fabulous thing in all this is we have to be asking this questions to each other on forums. When all of this should be imediatly and clearly informed in VR site.

Where are this information written?

VR, Phillipe, can you please give your costumers the information they have the right to have?

Thank you

Nuno

Hi,

I sent my poor little boat through a series of gybes and recorded the position updates.
It seems that the penalty with Pro Winches is slightly higher than 75sec at 50% speed
- for example at 11:46:40, 12:06:40.
If the penalty completes within one update cycle, the game does not report decreased speed.
If the penalty spans more than one update cycle, the penalty is instead somewhat smaller (12:02:40, 11:56:40, 11:50:41).

Without pro Winches the nominal penalty time seems to be 300sec.

AutoSails: off
AutoTWA: on
Pro Winches: yes

vR - Speed _R_eported by the game (kts)
vL - Speeed computed from _L_ogged positions (kts)
Δd - Distance travelled between position updates (nm)
