The Sandhamn Race Series
The Sandhamn Race series is based on knowledge about conditions from real life sailing in this area and the island positions is based on sea map from reality with minor deviations. The Tide conditions are added to create more dynamics.
In many cases the start-time gives a anti clockwise turn to the Tide-current, but some races could be based on one tide only (so its wise to take attention to times of tide against the time of start).
In Race series (1-10) was the relationships of tide, wind and waves under development. Biggest discrepancy is a comparison between Race 1 against Race 11, with decreasing difference with increasing Race number. However the discrepancy is only very local and with very slight differences.
In the Sandhamn series all races over race version number 10 are based on the same local; current, waves and wind, conditions.
The Host can change he variables; wind and start time.
Each wind and current has its own relation to land and islands related to direction. Start time setting affect current direction and intensity where it should.
