  • Re: qtVlm thread
    Board » Technical Support
    Thank you, whoever is anonymously posting as sol! It really would be helpful if you would post as yourself :-)

    I am doing a clean install, having first deleted the original folder on C:/ which has been around for several years!

    Now I'll wade back through here and see what changes I need to make as, stupidly, I forgot to make a note of the Sailonline "preferences" etc. before visiting here and seeing your advice on what to do! <eyeroll>

    :-)

  • Re: qtVlm thread
    Board » Technical Support
    I don't often fire up QtVLM but enjoy keeping my hand in with it. I just started routing in SWR and when I uploaded the Grib and zoomed out I spotted an odd "rash" of red dots and lines on-screen - nothing to do with the Grib, just highlighted by it.

    It would seem some kind of graphics-cache "thing" as the identical dots/lines appear irrespective of the grib I load.

    LOOK HERE

    Please can someone advise me on how to remove these random marks? It's not a major problem for me as I don't rely on Qt BUT ... they shouldn't be there.

    No doubt there is some cache I should have been clearing and haven't!

    I am running WIN7 on an HP Pavilion laptop and I keep Qt reasonably up to date (i.e., responding to the on-screen advisories of new versions most of the time!). When I update Qt I usually overwrite the contents of the Qt folder which is located on the C Drive in ProgramFiles.

Welcome to Stockholm - are you ready to race to St Petersburg? Our 431nm course from Sweden to Russia includes a couple of slight detours past Saaremaa and Hoglandet but if you keep a good lookout and avoid stealthy submarines, you should soon be docking your J130s at the home of the world renowned Hermitage Museum!

Perth-Fremantle ISAF Sprint 2018
To celebrate the running of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth, Australia, SOL organized an overnight offshore race and a Sprint: 65nm in a J-80 sportsboat along the Perth/Freemantle shoreline. We have raced the course several times since then. This year, to hurry things up, we’re going to do it in an Open 60. Proper sprinting!

SWR 17/18 Leg 6 - Hong Kong to Auckland
While others have spent the two-week stay in Hong Kong sailing up and down the Zhujiang River and around Hong Kong Island, we have been able to completely relax and spend the days preparing for Leg 6 from Hong Kong to Auckland.
We will (almost) sail the exactly same way back to where we came from and that means another meeting with the Doldrums, which hopefully this time will be kinder to us. But if that does not happen... no one said this SWR 17/18 would be easy!
