Viva all.

Since some time I have this issue concerning the use of barriers.

The qT I'm using is the version 5.4-3 Nov 1.2016.

Now the issue (pls see also the attached PDF file).

1 - I've open a Grib file for the West Atlantic.

2 - Created a new barrier in the China Sea.

3 - When I zoom to all the Grib's grid space I get two horizontal lines that come from the China Sea created barrier!?

4 - If I want to make a routing N-S in the Atlantic intersecting the Latitudes of those two horizontal lines, I just can't,

5 - unless I clean that barrier.

I would like to know if:

A - This is a problem?
B - The rest of the qT users have the same issue (assuming it is one)?

Thank you.
Sail Fair.

Can you send me your poiReal.dat please (I guess this is already corrected but just to check)

Viva Philippe,

Good morning.

I’ll send you the requested file (“poiReal.dat”) but mind you that, meanwhile, I had to remove the Sea China barrier so I could perform the Atlantic routings. Otherwise it was impossible to do it, unless changing the routing option for “Avoid barriers”, which is not an option if we really need “barriers” to be active.

Even now, that I’m making a routing for the X2X race, the polylines from other barriers are generating outside the actual Grib Grid horizontal barrier lines on other areas of the globe.

Thank you & BH

Thanks for the report João
That's fixed and will be in the next release, due very soon, probably today.
5.4.4-beta1 out on VW (http://www.virtual-winds.org/forum/index.php?/topic/7575-qtvlm/&do=findComment&comment=271697).

Please take your chance to complain/report/suggest before official release ;)
Hey Phillippe
When I draw a heading, the numbers are so small that I can't read them.
Is there a way to enlarge them?
Confusion when increasing TWS Wind Grib.

Viva Philippe.

Good afternoon.

In the qT tab “Advanced settings” tab included in the “Routing settings” menu, there is an option to increase the Wind speed by a percentage that you specify - pls see also attached PDF file.

Made a first test routing with no increase (100%) in the Wind speed and got the first route (blue path).
After, I’ve made a second test routing the Wind speed increased by 15% (115%) and got a second and different route from the first one (purple path).

But what puzzled me was the info I’ve got from qT before the second routing became the second route:

“This routing has been calculated with an assumption modifying grib data”, (so far so good).

The problem came after when, in the same info window had this:

“The route will not take this scenario into account.
Are you sure you want to convert to route?”!?

Well, the two routings were made from the same start and finish marks, starting exactly at the same time. The only different was a15% increase in the TWS for the second routing.
Anyhow, I’ve got two different routes.

The question.

If, as said in the info window that: “The route will not take this scenario into account.”, how and why do we obtain two different routes?

Does it really takes, or not, the effect on the routing and corresponding route the TWS increase?

Thank you and
a BH.

The what-if mechanism only applies to routings, not routes. So once converted in a route you loose them.

You get 2 differents routes because although the route ignore this setting the routing founds other points, of course. So the 2 routes are different, but they are using the same wind.

There is another way to achieve what you want:

In configuration->grib, you can specify a global correction on wind (TWS). Run a routing with this modification, convert it in a route etc, and then FREEZE the route. Then you can reset this setting (or change it) and do a routing->route again, and compare the routes.

Viva Philippe.

Haha, thank you for this good tip (“TWS correction”).

This was precisely what I needed.

I've directly downloaded some grib2 files from the NOMADS server which include pressure. One uses PRES variable and the other uses PRMSL. Only the PRES one will render the pressure information. I'd prefer to use the PRMSL version if we can get it to work. I've attached the PRMSL grib file for testing.

Susan Hood Trophy Race 2024

Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) welcomes racers to Sailonline’s virtual version of their fourth virtual Susan Hood Trophy race. This is a 75nm weekender on western Lake Ontario starting and finishing at the Port Credit Yacht Club (PCYC) via Niagara and Burlington, and is one of two that will count towards a special Sailonline's LOOR Series medals. As our Beneteau First 36.7 managed the course so well in previous years, we shall race her again!

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. 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.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
