The game engine employs a 0.3% tolerance on sail changes. A sail change is performed only if the another sail is more than 0.3% faster. While sailing in the tolerance zone, the engine uses the faster sail speed without inflicting the sail change penalty.

That's as good as auto sails can get, imo. The 0.3% tolerance avoids unecessary sails changes iin almost all situations, and you never loose speed because of deferred sail changes.

@Jaydque Just look at all the posts on this matter and answers. I agree, much more in French than in English, but still plenty. Certainly due to lazyness of people to do a search rather than posting again and again same questions.

you would read that auto sail is bring a penalty of:

75s at 50% of the speed if you have the winch pro

300s at 50% of the speed if you don't

Thant the display, when changing is unfortunately not accurate until the information reach the server after 10 min. However, even if the display is wrong, info at the server will be calculated accordingly.

But to read all these answers, you had to do a search very simply.
