    Joao was one of life's true gentlemen. I 1st met him here in SOL and we became good friends. He helped me immensely from setting up Fifi to improving my general navigation technique.

    After I stopped sailing here we continued to stay in touch. He gave me every encouragement he could with my photography. I have pages and pages of PMs of advice and suggested re-edits - all so supportive.

    His heart was huge. He care for our society and would often vocalise injustices - particularly to disabled people.

    I am sorry we never got to meet but Joao will be an influence on me and my photography for a long time to come. My respects to Miguel and his family.

    Big Hugs Joao. Big hugs my friend.

    Im not a tachie but Kippers point that making the grib denser (to under 0.5)and the problem being resolved seems to suggest its the way QT is handling less dense files.

    The conversion is a process few of us (me included!) can do!!

    Thank you for looking at this

    It is the Brainaid grib and the SailDocs gribs :)

    How do all

    Further to discussions in the RTW chat Odyss pointed out that QT had some annoying bars across the screen. I had initially put it down to a shortage of memory on my computer and the bars being nothing but a drawing issue - but on closer inspection it seems to be affecting the routing - screen shot Odyss posted in chat

    Version 5.3.7

    The problem occurs when using saildocs and Brainaids gribs

    Update- Issue is also occurring in 5.3.5
    Update - from Kipper All, just tracked down the Qt bug. If the grib grid resolution is 1 degree or greater, the problem occurs. Of the resolution is less than 1 degree, it goes. I've just reprocessed the Brainaid grib down to 0.5

    It seems (for at least 3 of us) that the grib files are not being loaded by QTVLM - Ive sent Eddie another email and will update here as and when I hear anything (if Eddie doesn't post 1st!)

Sail Newport Timed Race 2022


Welcome to Rhode Island in our first TIMEDrace this year. In 2020 we raced on Maxi Trimarans, now we will see how fast we can cover the 87nm route around Block Island, Fishers Island and back to the clubhouse on MC 38 monohulls. The previous record of 4 hours 5 minutes and 21 seconds belongs to Kipper1258. Try to judge your weather window well, but once you've finished (you must have finished), you can always try again (as often as you like) by clicking the link below.

Yellow Sea Race 2022
There are six seas along the eastern seaboard of mainland Asia. Six seas less travelled by the racing sailor. So, here we go. Six races up and down the Asian coast, plus one in the nearest sea to the Asian mainland of the Indonesian Archipelago, to make it a mythical seven; five to count. And in no particular order, we start with a 2200nm or so race criss-cross through the Yellow Sea in ever-elegant Italia 14.98's.
