Experimental version

July 16, 2012

This years's Pacific Cup has started today. I am providing commented routing results here: Cirrugator Routings for the Pacific Cup 2012.

Remember that you can still do the routing for yourself by going to the
Cirrugator Easy Routing site, select a boat and press the Go button.

Or for even easier routing download CirrugatorDroid as an app for your Android based smartphone/tablet (internet connection required).

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me!

In preparation for this years's Pacific Cup, the router build into Cirrugator has been made available as a simplified, stand-alone version as Cirrugator Easy routing. Hopefully it will contribute to understanding how to find the 'magic' route. Try it out!

Cirrugator has found a new home on its own website, and on a new server, which gives the performance that was sometimes missing on the previous installation.

Try it out! Ulli

Cirrus on First Place!

... and Cirrugator was key in getting them there! Next boat was some 100 miles behind them! Here is an excerpt from the press release of the Transpac Organizers:

The final winner was Cirrus, a 34-year-old Standfast 40 in Aloha B class [...]

[Captain] Austin said at the dock, "We kind of came into this as an underdog. Ulli [Ulli Steiner, Myers' fellow nuclear physicist in Germany and longtime friend] wrote a weather tracking program [i.e. Cirrugator] for us. A couple of days into the race the program said to go south for 2 1/2 days. I didn't think that was the thing to do and we talked about it for a full day. Finally, I decided to go south as the program said, but for only 1 1/2 days. We weren't sure if that was the right thing to do but... Oh! Let me tell you how we found out it was the right move!

You can replay the race with Cirrugator all by yourself. All data are available online; look for the links to Cirrugator in the left panel.

Congratulation to the crew. Did they enjoy the victory? - I think the picture tells it all. Look for more info in the blog.

Aloha, Ulli
