    Nice job techs. Will take a bit of getting used to from my side... and not having been on SOL for some time it's a big user interface change straight up. Will play around with it a bit and see what's what.

    Yip... seen the Chrome message as well... SOL will be more challenging in future for sure unless some of the brainy folk can come up with some magic.

    Can I make a suggestion?

    Can the SOL powers that be create a page / link for SOLers who have sailed on?

    We have lost quite a few loved fellow SOLers through the years and for the new SOLers who have joined in recent times as well as new SOLers to yet join it would be good to know in whose wake they sail.

    Devastated to say the least. When we last spoke on email Joao had extended an invitation to us to visit him at home as soon as I can get a yacht kitted and make the passage to Portugal... that was not that long ago. Was looking forward spending some time with him and his family and go sailing together... That will now have to wait for a while.

    I for one will miss him a lot as we shared many a story on email and chatted quite a bit through the years...

    Bugger... don't know what else to say really... Will write a more coherent post later. Day suddenly gone strangely dark here by us.

    Does NOAA not give out medium to long term prediction models?
    I'm talking IRL cruising here and not SOL just for the record.

    Hi SOLers... Which are the best long to medium term weather and atmospheric data models to use for long distance cruising?

    asking for some guidance here.

    Thanks.
