Exactly. There, I said it.
I don't think imoca allows remote routing. For example in the route du rum the only classes allowed remote routage are the multis, for safety reasons.Thanks.
AIS is settled then:
"The AIS shall remain powered on and transmitting at all times while Racing."
"All satellite communication to and from the boat shall be made using the Inmarsat service. Alternative satellite systems may only be used in an emergency if the Inmarsat service is not available"
IMOCA class rules allow remote routing nowadays, and the router naturally has access to 24/7 positions of all the boats, so that would make it a bit complicated. Is remote routing allowed in this race? I guess not, otherwise why bother routing onboard, I have yet to find the definite answer on the rules.
They do it seems (for some races), but misunderstood what it means:I don't think imoca allows remote routing. For example in the route du rum the only classes allowed remote routage are the multis, for safety reasons.
They used to control it and its relatively easy technically to automatically prohibit traffic to the services you specify, and then mandate you have someone from the office in all group chats.Do the class rules talk about accessing a web site that gathers AIS data via satellite? Is that forbidden?
Are there general internet access restrictions, or is any access allowed?
In todays world, when the people use presumably their own devices and post to social media.... I say this is impossible to filter nor limit.They used to control it and its relatively easy technically to automatically prohibit traffic to the services you specify, and then mandate you have someone from the office in all group chats.
Could well be. It just looked exactly like the public one. Hard to say.So the version on the boats could easily be the same UI with less information on the UI or less frequent updates.
This actually isn't quite true, you can tell if someone is posting to WhatsApp, or to YouTube, very easily, the domain names you visit are not encrypted over a standard connection, this is very easy to track (and why you should use a VPN on any untrusted network [which is basically every network], free networks often track this usage information to sell on).In todays world, when the people use presumably their own devices and post to social media.... I say this is impossible to filter nor limit.
Everything is encrypted today, you cannot tell from outside whether someone is posting to their social media timeline or private messaging race tactics.
I can't remember anything in particular. They went a bit more east through that low wind area off brazil and got stuck there for longer. That's basically it, iirc.Could someone save me hours of reading and inform me why Biotherm is leaking so many miles per day to the other three in the last 3 or so days...? I assume there is a problem....?
Herman - what initializing info are you using on your runs. PRB has a longer elapsed time but shows finishing in front of Malizia. Are there slightly different timestamps on the positions?Quick routing with 20:30 UTC boat positions and GFS run 13:00 UTC to test the Arctic exclusion zone. It finally worked, the trick is to set boat speed to 0 in the exclusion area and to enlarge it.
ETA: 4 boats in 15 minutes in Capetown Feb 12th lunchtime with 1800+ nm to sail. Projections start to look like a one design class instead of a box rule class . ETA for Guyot; they are bleeding badly, half a day later projected in. St. Helena HP my guess, see the 2 dotted bits in their track. Loosing that 2nd sail will not help either. And I have not even adjusted their polars for that.

Holcim heading straight for Gough Island.! Their speed is ok so perhaps just a co-incidence.?Holcim-PRB have broken off from the drag race & heading south. Will the leading two follow?
