    Hi,
    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I'm not much code guy... just a sailor - so I'm going to try and play the game with sailor tools (Expedition Software) and no java script or other tools you online pros use that probably are a lot better for the application. A few follow up q's

    1) what is the "html5 client" you refer to?
    2) I saw a youtube presentation where an expert seemed to know that the NAMAWIPS model would be used for the game - but in your answer it looks like the game uses a bunch of different models and might mix them around - so you have to look at the "update time" and follow your hints about which model comes out at what time - to know what model to "play" with. Is tht correct? And then if I use the "normal" NOAA gribs - they won't be the same as the gribs the game uses for the first 1.5h or so after every model becomes available?)

    Thanks, sorry to be such a newby.
    Also a follow up - best source for polar files of the four boats in this Bermuda Race?

    Hi,
    I'm planning on using Expedition Navigation Software to route/assist me in playing my first sailonline.org game and I watched one tutorial organized by the event and have a few questions.

    1) will the gulf stream current be applied in the game - or only wind?
    2) Am I correct in understanding the AWIPS NAM will be the weather model used by the game?
    3) What GRID resolution will the game use?
    4) When will the game "update" the weather model its using?
    5) where is the best place to get the Grib of the model used by the the game?
    6) If the NAM is being used - Any idea if either the hi res or conus models available in Expedition's NOAA download module are the "correct" model.
    thank you
