Hej Bimmer,

Point 4: Get brainaid's NMEA Proxy up and running
That's my challenge?
Could you explain how to ....


Of course.
You will find a link to "brainaids site" via "Links" on Sailonline's homepage.
On "brainaids site" choose "Sailonline Toolbox".
In the toolbox you log in with your sailonline login and choose the race you want.
This is where you get the weather gribs, the polars and other stuff.
Click on "Navigation" and then click on the link in blue writing. This will download the NMEA Proxy for YOUR boat.
Click on the downloaded file (uses Java), fill in your password and click on "Login".
Now you only need to click on "Start" and you are up and running.

Hope this helps. :-))

If you need further assistance I can be reached on SKYPE as finn0703

Thanks a lot Bimmer,
I got it to work with Firefox. I tried with Chrome a number of times, but failed.
Probably because of Java not running on new Chrome.

Thanks again :)
Great SKOVSER ;-)

Viva Bimmer.

The GRIB file can be any format qT reads.
The "numbers" are "TWS" on the nodes of the GRIB, something you get tweaking the menu called with the "windsock" icon.

Meanwhile, I was looking the new OR and ... look to the attached pic.

Nice jump!
Sail Fair.
Oi Bimmie ! Nice work on Qt mate..

thxs !

Best, Dikke
Hello Bimmer, everything works great on qtvlm until I get to the NMEA proxy part. The saved file has a IE symbol next to it and when I click on it it comes up with options open or save and thats as far as I can get.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Hi Irish Rover.
Are you using IE as your standard browser?
What happens if you click "Open"?


Feel free to contact me on Skype (finn0703)

I use Firefox as standard, when I click open it creates another line with open or save options as well and keeps repeating this action if I click open or save.
I'm not very computer savvy so it's a bit frustrating!
Do you have Java on your machine? Otherwise go to Java and download it.

Please download Skype and call me. We can fix it in 10 minutes :-)

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
