Not sure if this is any real problem, but the qtVlm map for the 'Return from Lindisfarne' race is only showing Finish A and Finish B and not showing Göteborg! The SOL race map is showing Göteborg!
The easy solution is to insert a new mark called Göteborg in the desired location which I have done in my qtVlm. But why was it not there to start with is my question.
Probably NMEA does not like "ö" and similar strange characters
Probably NMEA does not like "ö" and similar strange characters
Correct. NMEA standard only allows the standard ASCII set. The extended character set is not supported. This has been raised before with the SOL race constructors not to use the extended character set in waypoint names, as they are not supported.
Sorry for possibly stuoid question

How do I get a Brainaid DC eatable format out of QTVLM Rout Export ? Tried several times....


TKS 2 ALL
I've released a new version of AGL (3.2.1) that remaps the extended ASCII set to the standard ASCII set. This version will fix the problem permanently.
find kroppyer sailonline tools.

On the left side you find
QtVLM route converter
Click on it and see what you can do with that.

Alternatively find a good text-editor into which you load your .csv file.

Delete all the columns you do not need.
first column will be date (dd/mm/yyyy or mm/dd/yyyy format). The values here you have to change to brainaids format (yyyy/mm/dd)
Some pasting together date and course is the next step

If in the editor you can make a little program/macro, that would be quit helpfull to accomplish this whole transformation.

And to be precise:
In QTVLM you go to
Routes>Edit route->
choose routing# you want to edit.
click on <Route logbook> and wait till the "Route logbook" is on screen.
Now click on <Eport (CSV format)>

Hi there. Trying to do the whole routing thing only on an ipad. I'm almost there but it's so long since I've done this I've forgotten one thing. Can someone fill me in please...is Andrew's (kipper's) programme the only place to source the race marks file (gpx file)? Thanks.
I have an enhancement request. Can we please add current time to the current position (through the Position tab on the boat information). I using qt for an IRL ocean race on the weekend and we had to report time and position several times during the race, and also record out finish time. It would be great to have this all in the same place. Thanks in advance.
Hello all,
this may be a bit special: I'm actually participating the race to Rio, using qtvlm as routing software, with brainaids fine nmea-tool (on a mac mini, with catalina running). So far so good. What if I want to attend next the next race (Dondra to Sanya) with the race to Rio still running? May I use a second installation of qtvlm (simple copy)? An what about nmea? There seems no way to assign an different IP…

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

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.
