Load the file in another grib viewer (zygrib, adrena, opencpn, squid, whatever) to check if it is correct or not.
Good morning Philippe.

Yesterday I've made the sugested test with zxyGrib on two consecutive WRF gribs and got the same problem: only a 24 hr period.
I'll have a go with Adrena and open, and be back after.
Sail Fair.
Then the problem is not in qtVlm, but in the grib file itself...
Ok, back.
And the news are not good.

Both Adrena and openCPN have the same problema: they can't load the WRF Grib file to full extent.

If the common denominator is the GRIB file, the problem is there.

I'll contact Eddie / "brainaid" with c/c to Huib.

Thank you Philippe.
Sail Fair.
Except that for me, it's a good news ;)
Viva all.

I'm having an issue in the "Import" qT routes using a "*.json" file format previously exported from qT (with the same format).

It doesn't work.

Post annotated by kroppyer-admin :
sol's display name was changed to glenan by someone (now reverted). You were logged on as sol when you posted.
What is happening?
The previous post (the json file import issue) was made by me (psail), not glenan!?!
Sail Fair.
Ok, fixed, thanks for reporting it.

We are almost ready to release qtVlm 5.4.0. Maybe you want to give it a try and check that nothing is broken concerning SOL?

There is a beta version for windows available here:

Hi Philippe.

Susac X2
Welcome to the beautiful calm waters of the Adriatic Sea for the virtual running of the Susac X2 race which is a real-life race organized by the JK Mornar Sailing Club based in Split, Croatia. Although we, unfortunately, aren’t running this magnificent race with the real fleet this year, we hope to make this possible in the coming editions. This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

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.
