Hi maitai,

Thank you for your clarification. I forget that Qt can be used on a phone/tablet. It makes sense to me now the need for "Best performance" mode.
Excellent work.

Please find attached zip which demonstrates the behaviour. The zip file contain two snapshots showing the routing generated from the pathway with the malformed isochrons, and the other directly to the target waypoint. I've also included the grib file and the other files I think you need to reproduce. Please let me know if you need any other data.

Hello,
The problem arises because you ask to route from boat and your first pathway point is already at the boat position. I'll fix that but in the mean time in that case please route from 1st mark in pathway.
There appears to be an issue with the xml header in the GPX export generated by Route Export which I think is causing the strict Java xml parsing to fail. It has to do with the syntax of the version. I've included two sample files of the same route. One that parses, and the other that does not. Is it possible to change the header to suit the version that works? Thanks

Ok, I'll change that
Hi,

In "Boat settings", "Tacks and Gybes";
What does it means "... during __ cranks"?

What is "cranks"?, and how many cranks do you guys usually use?

I tend to set Gybes at "90% of polar speed", but I don't understand how to set the "cranks".

Merci beaucoup,
Antonio
"Crank" is the internal step qtVlm is using. By default it is 5 minutes. You can change that but be sure you know what you are doing ;)

So let's say you don't change the default crank value, if you input 90% for 3 cranks it means the boat will use 90% of the polar for 15 minutes, and most importantly that tacking and gybing again will be forbidden during 15 minutes.
Perfect! Mercy.
Hi Guys,
I've noticed that special characters in waypoint names prevent them from being loaded when sent via NMEA. The waypoint name "Tróia Peninsula" does not load. NMEA sentence copied from qtVlm is below.

$GPWPL,3829.610,N,00854.894,W,Tr�ia Peninsula*F8

Similarly, the attached gpx does not load either. I remove the special characters from Setúbal, Tróia and Póvoa and it all works fine. Both files attached.

Cheers
Andrew

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024


Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024


Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
