Jibs speed penality
Post by iconPost by Valou | 2020-12-06 | 08:42:42

As there is a speed reduction of 50% during 75sec with the full pack,
Does ZEZO include it in the routing?
Also is there any easy way to define what distance to do btw 2 jibs to get the benefit of them anyway, depending on the speedboat and wind..

Router knows about the penalty. It would gybe every 10 minutes if it did not.

But it can't guarantee you optimum result. For one thing it does not know your current tack, so calling it repeatedly will result in a gybe suggestion 10 minutes after the turn. I generally trust it with the average leg length if not with the exact times.

Easy way to calculate? No. Right now there are tree factors in play along the red line - shorter distance, stronger wind, and 1-degree wind shift.
