formats are provided to display the results of passage
simulations. The detailed reports can be printed or
viewed on screen.
The Vessel Performance Report details
a vessel's predicted performance during the current
passage. Nautical miles moved, great circle distance,
elapsed time, average boat speed, speed made good,
average wind force, and mean wind directions are
presented for each leg. The percentage of elapsed time
spent at four different angles relative to the wind (or
relative to current for power vessels) are also
displayed along with average wind force.
The Great Circle Report is presented in the format
you might use if you were to travel the great circle
route between waypoints in a passage. The distance to
travel, the course to steer, and ending point latitude
and longitude are given for each segment that makes up
the leg's great circle route.
A Weather Conditions Report provides information on
the weather conditions predicted during a passage. Great
circle distance, distance moved, and elapsed times are
presented. Additional information about ocean
conditions, atmospheric conditions, and wind and storm
conditions are also provided.
Additional available reports include the Passage
Summary, Vessel Speed Profile and Screen Shot.
The Instant Report window can be displayed as a
floating window that will updated in real-time as you
make changes to your passage. Up to 13 various
route parameters can be displayed at once. By
selecting a parameter within the Instant Report window,
the passage route will be color coded on the map to
reflect the values along the route. For example,
you can instantly see where you are slower, or where the
mean wind speed is greatest along the route.
