These waypoints are not displayed in qtVlm when these NMEA sentences are sent through.

$GPWPL,5950.057,N,01909.176,E,Villösan*F4
$GPWPL,6011.224,N,01926.018,E,Töllingarna*92

$GPWPL,5952.224,N,01905.144,E,Simpnäs Pir*FD

It appears to be related to the extended character set being used. Remove the ö from the name and it works fine.
Good point Kipper,
In the Nordic we use 3 caracters not found international, and we translate them as follows:

æ/ä = ae
ø/ö = oe
å/å = aa

Would be fine if SRC avoid theese caracters in the future.

To reproduce, do the following.
1. Set grib time to now.
2. Edit route and check route logbook. AWA and AWS are fine. Close editor.
3. Select a route waypoint and set grib date, or step forward (I was using 5 min increments)
3. Edit the route and check route logbook. All AWA's and AWS's are zero

See screenshots below.

The zero's then flow into the export.

Hi Andrew, unless I'm not following your instructions correctly, that doesn't seem to happen to me.
Hi all.

Andrew, if memory doesn't fail, the related problem came on the qT 5.8.2 version, hence the main reason for stop upgrading qT since 5.8.1 (there are other reasons).

No such problem here, what version are you using on which platform?

@João/psail what other problems ?

Qt Version 5.8-4
Windows 10

It is transient and I think it is related to an NMEA update which appears to fix the logbook. I think it also needs more than one route to reproduce. It will reproduce though by repeating the steps
1. Set grib date
2. View route logbook.

I can get it to reproduce about 50% of the time if NMEA is turned on. It does not reproduce if NMEA is turned off.

Hope this helps.

It's really weird. The instance I'm using has two routes in it. I set a grib date based on a route waypoint. The first route was fine, and the other wasn't, then they switched (did not change the date). Then they both fine, now switched back again (after about 2 minutes) and then switches again.
Hi,
Thanks for the detailed information. I was able to reproduce that and it's a race condition that can occur randomly if NMEA is on. I fixed that and it's in beta4: https://www.virtual-winds.org/maitai/qtvlm_setup_5.8.6-beta4

Please test this and tell us if it's OK now. If you or someone else needs this beta for another platform than Windows just tell me.

Philippe.

Replied today to Philippe.

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.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

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.
