Next, the race committee displays its course signals: 1.2 miles to the weather mark, at a bearing of 255 degrees. Course 1 is also displayed. The “course” icon on the app gives direct access to any preconfigured courses and a windward/leeward course wizard. A quick entry of the number of laps, direction and distance to Mark 1, and the course overview on the iPad now shows laylines to the weather mark. Maestri and Michaelis have been very good about recording what sails they use in which wind conditions with the sail-tracking function of Tactiqs, so they know their inventory’s fastest configurations. The boat’s instruments are reading 12 knots and recorded history says we should be using the medium jib. Because I am getting increasingly comfortable with the system, I have no reason not to believe the data.
