Board » Technical Support » Anyone still using BWR? Gribs not loading

I gave up on BWR many months ago when gribs from brainaid would not load. Has anyone else experienced this? I tried again today and these are the error messages from BWR:

grib: grib_seek C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203_1026.grb: Only read 7816 out of 17640 bytes for EntireMsg (offs=1040760)

grib: missing vector data for UGRD, period 29, deleting sequence

grib: Postprocessing failure for sequence 33 (parameter 1988196324)

grib: C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203-1026.grb: No usable records found

I have the current version of BWR v.1.87

I'm happy using QtVLm but thought I'd give BWR another try.

Thanks,
Phil (Garagiste)

Lascareno :-)
I wonder why you keep on posting as "sol"!
You're providing a lot of useful info in these forum posts, so why "sol" instead of "Lascareno"

BWR-adepts

if you are sailing SWR 17/18 Leg 4 - Melbourne to Hong Kong do not forget to uncheck the part of the weather that is beyond the 180!

If you do not do that then BWR tells you it can not reach the end-point.

Even much easier is to cut the download grib to 179.

Then BWR just routes without further ado.

If you cross the 180 from west to east and you are using autogribloader as source then the gps-position will be on the right side of the chart. And there you can not use it for routing purposes.

If you use brainaids NMEA proxy as source then the GPS-position will be put on the left side of the chart where it can be used for routing.

The grib delivered by AutoGribLoader neither works in BWR.
Here I use the grib delivered by Brainaids Toolbox too.

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
