Estimated reading time: 1 min

1. Open the Sailmon App

2. Click on your trip (see here how to filter your timeline)

3. Scroll down to Highlights

4. Click on one of the Highlights (personal bests that day). Each highlight will be compared with any other Sailmon App user that day:
– Top speed (Kn)
– Best Upwind Performance (%)*
– Best Downwind Performance (%)**
– Fastest 500m (Kn)
– Miles Sailed (Nm)

*Upwind performance
Upwind performance is based on how fast you are moving directly into the wind. We call this VMG or Velocity Made Good. Tap on a ranking and view how this performance is calculated. The targets you see are based on the median speed and angle of a report. With those numbers we calculate VMG. That VMG is compared with the best VMG ever measured in this class for these wind conditions (Heavy).

**Downwind performance
Downwind performance is based on how fast you are moving directly away from the wind. We call this VMG or Velocity Made Good. Tap on the ranking and view how this performance is calculated. The targets you see are based on the median speed and angle of a report. With those numbers we calculate VMG. That VMG is compared with the best VMG ever measured in this class for these wind conditions (Heavy).
