  • Getting a grib from Saildocs

    QUOTE
    Now, those of us who route know that the gribs we can download from BrainAid are 7-day forecasts. If these won’t get you to your goal, it is not difficult to get a 14-day grib from NOAA, the same source SOL uses for our ocean races. Just send an email to query@saildocs.com that looks like:
    gfs:45N,35S,81W,12W|0.5,0.5|0,3,…,360|

    As you can see, it is in three parts:

    45N,35S,81W,12W are the area co-ords
    0.5,0.5 is the spacing of the grid for the grib (e.g. 0.5O latitud- and 0.5O longitudinally)
    0,3,…,360 is the spacing and range along the time dimension (e.g. every 3hr to 360hr):

  • Re: WINSTON_4 RETIRES FROM COMPETITIVE SOL RACING
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    What a wonderful post! To "leave" on a high is always the best way to go and those of us in the less-competitive remaining fleet now welcome you to our midst.

    It takes a calm mind and a great sense of humour to be happy/accepting of being uncompetitive, but, of course, it also means that you can sleep well at night. Picking a personal matchracing target is always fun, though!

    Until, of course, some competition is just too delicious to ignore!

    :-D
