How do all

Further to discussions in the RTW chat Odyss pointed out that QT had some annoying bars across the screen. I had initially put it down to a shortage of memory on my computer and the bars being nothing but a drawing issue - but on closer inspection it seems to be affecting the routing - screen shot Odyss posted in chat

Version 5.3.7

The problem occurs when using saildocs and Brainaids gribs

Update- Issue is also occurring in 5.3.5
Update - from Kipper All, just tracked down the Qt bug. If the grib grid resolution is 1 degree or greater, the problem occurs. Of the resolution is less than 1 degree, it goes. I've just reprocessed the Brainaid grib down to 0.5

Same problema here with the same GRIB file!

Hello,
From where is this grib coming from? Is it something generated by SOL somehow?
It is the Brainaid grib and the SailDocs gribs :)
The grib displays fine if the standard interpolation is used.

So it's either inherent to the SOL interpolation formula, or it's a problem in our implementation of it.
Im not a tachie but Kippers point that making the grib denser (to under 0.5)and the problem being resolved seems to suggest its the way QT is handling less dense files.

The conversion is a process few of us (me included!) can do!!

Thank you for looking at this
Kipper has changed the 10:26 grib file into something usefull for QtVlm.
I'll see if I can persuade him to do this to the following updates, until the guys at QT has solved the problem.
They ARE alerted :-)
Thanks Bimm
Another solution is to change the settings in ADVACED fro SOL to Standard.

It looks like there is a transposition error. The stripes are displaced down the page by exactly one grid resolution (2.148 degrees).

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
