At this stage I want to be able to display the data on an excel sheet; TWA,TWD,BSP,COG that sort of thing.
Is it possible?
Could you point me in the right direction for research?
I've tried a couple of time but was not succesful
I suppose it could be done. Excel 2013 has two new functions called webservice and filterxml which you could probably use to pull boat.xml into Excel and display what you want.

Maybe the attached beginning of an excel macro will help you....

1. use timestamp=2147483647, it will get rid of the chat messages in the response, which can contain characters that not all xml parsers can handle.

2. There's a performance loss thread somewhere in the forum where I've posted (I think) a PHP script that logs some data in a csv.

3. This might not help Roddo. using boat.xml might work for sol, but won't help him when he's sailing IRL.
Roddo: what do you need this for..? and what exactly do you need? It's easy to assume you want a log of boat parameters every x seconds in a spreadsheet, so that you can apply some analysis afterwards. But maybe you want your spreadsheet log to grow automatically as racing continues. Or perhaps you don't want a log at all, but just the most recent values, updating live within the spreadsheet.

Have a look at one of Kipper's most recent posts on http://solfans.org/. He has a java application that (I believe) logs boat parameters (it does a lot more than that too).

I have no licence of expedition or excel, so I can't really hand you a solution, but at least I can try to make the problem clear :)

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.
