Home Forums 3d Race Replay Feature request: add VMC to the dashboard Reply To: Feature request: add VMC to the dashboard


Let us explain how raceQs works:

–  on upwind legs the tool shows VMC – the speed toward the wind direction.

– on downwind and reaching legs the tool shows VMG – the speed toward the mark direction.


The upwind leg is defined as any destination point you can’t reach w/o at least one tack. This logic work works fine for most of the cases except two rear exception.

– Upwind  leg when the boat on or above lay line – you are not supposed to hit the corners.

– Off wind leg  if you went a wrong way and need to tack to reach the mark.

Looks like we need to add a switch when the user can chose VMG vs. VMC .  Please provide your comments.
