Shipshape-Seashape at the Cannonball! 21. March 2012

Categories: Allgemeines @en,RPC 2012 en —   from: Ronald Zeiller @ 21. March 2012
 

Clean sailing does not mean slow sailing! On the contrary!

This was proofed by the Cannonball participants 2011.
18 crews have rounded Palagruža separating garbage last year.
4 of the 6 podium places went to clean Cannonballers!

Since last year the message to the sailing community has not changed:

“What we can do during a Round Palagruza Cannonball,
can be done on any cruising yacht, in any weather, any day.”

Clean Going Crews please announce their participation either to the organizer or directly to markus.steiner@living-ocean.org

This is a voluntary initiative by sail attack and Living-Ocean, more infomation in the pdf here

As the Round Palagruza Cannonball is well known for their innovations, we will be the first Austrian sailing regatta in the Adriatic Sea taking care about environmental requirements recommanded by the Austrian sailing federation.

Excerpt of the RPC sailing instructions:

It is prohibited to throw any garbage into the water during, before or after the race.
This concerns mainly glas, metal, plastic waste and cigarettes.

Boats who break this rule can be protested by the race commitee or the jury and get punished under rule 69 (Allegations of Gross Misconduct) of the RRS.

Track-O-Mio RPC 2011 Screenshot Tracking

Tracking Software Track-O-Mio ready to download (about 35MB incl. charts)

You can analyse RPC 2010 and 2011 with the replay function.

Some remarks

• Some tracking datas we are missing of 2010th Cannonball. 2011 is nearly complete. When a boat stops it means no datas anymore. If some datas are missing in between, the boats are sailing on a direct line with interpolated speed. That means no boat was sailing over islands or short cutted its way!
• To start the replay choose the regatta you want, press the play button and that´s it!
• At "Einstellungen" (Setup) you can choose if all the tracks "komplette Tracks anzeigen" should be shown
• The rest should be self explained - Have fun!!

Track-O-Mio will be the tracking software for the RPC 2012. We suggest to all skippers to download the program and test it on their boat-laptops. Of course we will have tracking on the internet too, but this program is optimized for very low data traffic once downloaded.

Erratum: in the last newsletter we published a wrong email adress for registration to the RPC training. Here is the right one: office@celox-sailing.eu
