14.2.3 doesn't seem to automatically download GRIBs anymore :-(


Looks like this only affected the Mel-to-Osaka race. Seems to work perfectly in other races. How bizarre!
I've put up a new version which is available here called AGL_14_2_4_update.zip and is an update as per the install instructions in the manual. To use, select NOAA, number of days to get and grib resolution. The Get PRMSL will include the pressure grib. It will create two files, e.g.GFS NOAA 1413 2020120700 1p00.grb2 and GFS PRT NOAA 1413 2020120700 1p00.grb2. The PRT one picks up from where the SOL grib finishes. Use that one in your router so you don't get overlapping and conflicting gribs. The other is the full grib. Note that the full 16 days download finishes about an hour after SOL publishes its grib.
Kipper - I can't find AGL_14_2_4_update.zip in that folder. I have AGL_14_2_4_update.rar but it does nothing, even if the extension is changed to .zip. ???

Accidentally compressed it into rar format. zip version there now
I've put up a new version which is available here called AGL_14_2_6_update.zip and is an update as per the install instructions in the manual. I've improved the GFS download to include the Pressure gribs (if selected) into the PRT file from the start of the gribs. This will allow a pressure overlay at all times, not just when GFS takes over from SOL. I've also added four new commands to the DC Checker right click dropdown called Tack, Gybe, Max Up and Max Down. These will tack or gybe the boat including performance loss minimisation (with confirmation of commands before being applied). The other two simply adjust the twa to Max VMG, either upwind(Up) or downwind (Down). IJ has also update the linux scripts so that AGL works under linux. I've asked him to pop a reply here on what you need to do to get it to work.
I've put up a new version which is available here called AGL_14_2_8_update.zip and is an update as per the install instructions in the manual. I've update the NOAA download to use the new folder structure (will work now) and fixed a bug with VMC waypoint checking
Kipper, thanks for your work on this. I love using AGL!

I've put up a new version which is available here called AGL_14_2_9_update.zip and is an update as per the install instructions in the manual. I accidentally forgot to include the tack, gybe and VMG functionality in 2.8, plus fixed the http 403 issue which was happening when the IP address changed.

I still have no idea why some are seeing the SSL errors with the NOAA downloader. It does not happen to me, so I can't debug.

There is a module missing from the Java Runtime Environment which is causing this issue. For windows users, download Java14_windows_update.zip, linux users, Java14_linux_update.zip and MacOS users, Java14 MacOS update.zip. Shutdown all instances of AGL and unzip the file as though you are applying an AGL update. Respond Yes to overwrite any existing files. Once unzipped, you can restart AGL.
Kipper, I'm fully new on SOL, I try to use AGL (what a great job!) with using the AGL 14 User Manual.
But I'can't use it because I've this message when "apply" => "TOKEN IS ERROR, TRYING AGAIN", I don't understand as I have followed all items of the manual.
I'm very desapointed
Where I can find an update manual, surrely I miss something
Is it necessary to use a proxy connection?
Many thanks
At the moment I use QtVLM, by the way I also play on VLM

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.
