Route du Rhum 2022 on Windy
SAIL.cloud aims at providing the world community of water sports enthusiasts with the first app for recording and sharing their sailing activities, and watching live and replay the sailing activities of their favorite sailors, throughout the year.
The "Route du Rhum 2022" is starting this week-end from Saint-Malo, France, and we have developped a windy-plugin-sailcloud-rdr2022, that will show real time the positions and tracks of all boats engaged in this offshore race.
This plugin is available at https://github.com/SAIL-cloud/windy-plugin-sailcloud.
We would like this plugin to be approved in order to :
appear in the list of plugins that can be loaded and opened from the windy.com/plugins section
display a link on our web site to enable visitors to load directly this plugin when they will click on https://windy.com/plugins/windy-plugin-sailcloud-rdr2022.
A similar plugin already exists that shows what it could look like with real data collected from the Rolex Middle Sea Race. Please see https://www.npmjs.com/package/windy-plugin-sailcoud-rmsr2022.
Best, SAIL.cloud team.
direct link to the plugin is https://www.windy.com/plugins/windy-plugin-sailcloud
The published version of our windy-plugin-sailcloud is pointing to a past event (Rolex Middle Sea Race 2022).
We have updated our plugin with the right event_id pointing to the upcoming Route du Rhum.
Could you please update the published version of our plugin with the one currently available in our repo?
@SAIL-cloud We will update it.
Apparently it has not been updated, or I missed something.
It still shows an old race around Sicilia, while the Route du Rhum race is due to start this afternoon in North Brittany after being postponed because of difficult weather conditions.

@Korina - Actually we have to continue working on this plugin in order to meet the race organizer expectations. In the meantime could you please unpublished our plugin (https://www.windy.com/plugins/windy-plugin-sailcloud) ASAP, as it gives a wrong image of this event? For the moment, the best place to follow the race, is on the official website: https://www.routedurhum.com/.
@SAIL-cloud Well, that's a shame, but we understand your situation and we will remove the plugin. We'll be happy to cooperate on the next race.
