    Well it happened again. I rebooted my computer and it started!!!
  • Re: QT NMEA activation error

    Again. I am at my wits end! Yesterday everything was working fine. Today no connection between SOL and QT. Failed to connect to TCP Host 192.168.4.26 Port 5010. I have been at it for 8 hrs. My very experienced techie for over an hr. Turned off all the firewalls. Downloaded latest version of Java 10/20/2020 and Qt 5.9-12. Brainaid Proxy is a security exception in both Java and my security software. Proxy opens and starts. Multiple ports tried. Qt settings checked. See above - once before it stopped during the Carib Race, no solution and then it started up again on its own!! I may be too frustrated to do the PIC without Qt! I have tired myself out to be able to handle 20+ hrs of SOMP's in what looks like a very tricky race of continuous tacking.

    Tx Vibex for your advice on WX Route updates vs creating a new Route. Unfortunately I did not see it until after the Carib Rum Run Race. You will see from my Report on that Race that I found out for myself during the Race. I might have done better than 9th if I had seen your advice earlier!!

    If you read my Carib Rum Run 2020 Report you will see how I am making early use of Qt. Can I encourage a discussion lead by those who know better on Qt Settings and how they impact results - Boat Settings/Tacks & Gybes, Route Settings-Best Performance vs Best Accuracy, Edit Route - Wind/Polar Corrections.

    Back working!!!! You tell me. It started just like it stopped!!!

    As a result of not being given an opportunity to accept the Java risk I now cannot login on the Proxy.

    NMEA connection lost during the Carib Rum Race. Message is "Failed to connect to TCP Host 192.168.4.26 using Port 5010.Tried changing ports. Opened and closed QtVLM, BrainAid, Closed and opened Proxy. Checked my security software BitDefender. Finally shut everything down rebooted my computer. Reopened everything. Now when proxy is opened Java quickly jumps past risk approval and does not open it for me to approve. Proxy cannot be started. So the problem seems to be Java related. Any ideas out there? I would hate to not be able to continue the Carib Race. I do have a Qt Route to the Bacardi Pick-Up revised after 9/14 UTC 2223 WX with the DC's uploaded.

    Satori is a relative newcomer to SOL and I am documenting what I am learning from generous SOLers. Attached are my introductory instruction notes with screen prints in PDF format for “Editing Route With New Weather Report and Uploading Resulting New Delayed Commands to SOL”.

    N2B was my 1st SOL. What GRIB file will be used in Mackinac? Do seasoned SYC use routing software? Is there a 101 on using DC's accurately and effectively?

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
