I can get the missing menu problem to repeat quite consistently. Any time I open and OpenGL renderer in Java, the menus disappear. I then have to restart qtVlm to get them back. I'm running on Windows 10 with the jogl java libraries. Hope this helps.

PS. I have not upgraded to 5.7.0 yet.
Hi Andrew,
That is an interesting finding....
5.7.0 uses latest qt libraries so there is some hope it is fixed. Can you upgrade and report if the problem persists?
Sorry to insist but I need an answer before the next one.
Do you still have the menu problem with latest version 5.7.0?
The problem is solved om my 5.7.0
Solved on my computers too.

I have a request. I really like the feature where the loaded grib is displayed on the QtVlm window header. It's a great easy check to make sure you are routing with the correct grib.

I wonder if it is possible to also include up here the boat polar which is loaded? This would mean that is very easy to double check both current grib and polar before routing.

Perhaps though the real estate in the header is too limited if a number of gribs are loaded at once?

The reason I ask is because a number of us old-timers have been known to route with the wrong polar if we are sailing a couple of races at the same time. ;)

I understand your need :) but as you say there is no much place here (some people are using qtVlm on very small screens).
And normally in real mode one does not change polar so often. Sailonline usage is the exception for that.
Cheers, understood! :)
the boat polars are visible in the main board.

Hi Team
I have qtVlm setup, the NMEA proxy running but I can't get the NMEA settings right in qtVlm. I have attached/uploaded the relevant screen shots. Please can you offer some advice. Cheers Dave

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!
