Optiteam 1.0 beta

Enough time ago I wanted to make a utility of calculation for the positions of Team Racing. I did not find anything in Internet, I put hands to the work and here it is! the beta version.
Several users are proving it to arrive at the final version. Moving optimist to the sum of points and the face of the members of the equipment change :).
Download the zipped version. Decompressing it to a folder with a page HTML is created.

Soon the final version!

For desperate trainers - aquatic TEG.
Often we were with an exhausted training, boring, or because there is no wind, have finished the novel exercises to us, or the boys are boring and they do not have desire to do nothing. Recently time a game was happened to me that works very well and is quite productive. One is the following thing: A route winward-leeward or any other is placed that is fast. I use the arrival in stern (in the same gate) with two winwards them one short and another length, but that is to criterion of each one.
All the boys join themselves in coach boat forming a round. The coach has prepared letters (made by he himself) with objectives written. Soon each boy chooses a letter and reads it without saying to anybody his objective. The regata is released and who manages to fulfill his objective one gains a point, otherwise it obtains zero. The objectives that I used and worked very well are: ´the one of your right must be the last one´, ´the third of your left has to win´, ´the second of your left must do 720° and arrive fourth´, ´the one of your left must arrive with starboard and second place´, etc etc... The conflict of objectives very causes amused regatas. Warning! to write down the objectives well that were called on each one to avoid ´problems´... To write down well, since the thing can be put enough warms up.

Notes - Several notes available, only have to request it by mail. speed, turned of buoys, downwind techniques, taken, etc, etc. Totally proven.
