Video taken from Sail Simulator 5. In this video the boat is steering autonomous using a sailing algorithm and it reads coordinates from a text-file. Destination of this test route, is the Island preset as position longitude 0, latitude 0.
A part of the software that makes a route for the sailboat based on weather statistics. The different colors represents different datalayers for the representing position. You can also see the route painted in yellow.
The Route shown here is from Penzance, England to Jacksonville, USA. Note that this is probably not the destination.
