Update to


Michel reported a bug found during his tests of the practice carrier option - if the WOD value was less than the natural wind speed, it caused 'Range check error'.

Apart from the natural wind limits of 8..24 knots, mentioned in the manual, you should take into account this simple formula:

(WOD / 2) < Natural wind < (WOD / 1.5)

For example, for the desired WOD of 22 knots natural wind must be set from 11 to 15 knots. The program now checks these limits and will infrom you if natural wind doesn't meet these requirements.

You might have noticed that the Wind speed slider allows only 4 settings for the speed - 8, 16, 24 and 32 knots. So, using this slider it is impossible to set required natural wind.

It's ok! Open the Advanced weather settings, then on the Wind tab set the exact wind speed, i.e. from 11 to 15 knots in our example.
