    I have no words. I always had the utmost respect when racing against psail. He will be missed more than I can express. Fair winds and following seas to a friend I never met. - Garagiste

    Board » Technical Support
    Is anyone else experiencing this? In the Gray Whale race qt is acting differently. After a routing is created, the simplify/optimize functions do not appear to be working but finish instantly and the final route seems different than the original routing. Also, all the poi's are added to the Marks list. I don't think I made any changes to the settings or configuration.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Sure, why not. I'll "wing" it. SOTP it is. Cheers!

    Since Brainaid is not cooperating at the moment, the current (1621) wx file is attached.

  • Anyone still using BWR? Gribs not loading
    Board » Technical Support
    I gave up on BWR many months ago when gribs from brainaid would not load. Has anyone else experienced this? I tried again today and these are the error messages from BWR:

    grib: grib_seek C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203_1026.grb: Only read 7816 out of 17640 bytes for EntireMsg (offs=1040760)

    grib: missing vector data for UGRD, period 29, deleting sequence

    grib: Postprocessing failure for sequence 33 (parameter 1988196324)

    grib: C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203-1026.grb: No usable records found

    I have the current version of BWR v.1.87

    I'm happy using QtVLm but thought I'd give BWR another try.

    Thanks,

    This has been a wonderful and, at times, emotional experience for me. Aaron and I exchanged a few emails as I was learning SOL, and I still go back occasionally and read his blog posts. I really miss his camaraderie here. I know we are all appreciative of his tireless efforts and contributions to SOL.

    Fair winds my friend.

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.
