Hello Solers,
recently hmm's site stopped working and there is no opportunity to know data of other boats (I agree this).
But we lost some very useful feature: the opportunity to read the data of our own boat (COG - TWA - VMC) with prediction up to 4 days in steps of 15.0 min.
I'm not able to make software that can give me this information and ask: "there is some "SOLer Programmer" who is able to do it?"
Thanks and FW all.

Scara - Just download and use Kipper's tool "AGL" from here: http://solfans.org/blog/weather/dc-checker-editor-grib-loader-and-more/

Thanks Bimmer,
I know that AG gives data of all boats (and I don't like): I need data only of my boat with COG - TWA - VMC preview for 4 days.
I don't think AG provides these data.
About data of all boats, I know that SOL not agree to make them public, and I believe that Kipper should at least limit the update at no less than 15 minutes.
Carlo Alberto
WxInspector has a long predictorline right? Both for TWA and COG, just not VMC (the most useful of the three...)

I'm not aware of any software that would help you with that, other than routers..

PS: I'm very glad kipper shares his "live data from other boats"-tool, instead of keeping it to himself, only sharing a version that gives data of other boats only every 15 minutes.

Hello Kroppyer,
I try to explain better ...
Clicking SCARABOCCHIO in the hmm's data list, opens a new page with an "Excel type table" showing the data of my boat: choosing COG - TWA or VMC, with a minimum interval of 15 minutes for a maximum of 4 days of prediction period, appears a new table with the prediction data required.
Look at the attachment, it is an example of what I mean.
With these data was possible to check the boat's course and set the DC more easily.
Thanks all.

The predictor line in WxInspector is (as far as I know) the closest to that. It's a bit of a hassle to get the numbers, but you should easily find you position after X minutes, and with that, the windspeed/direction at that location at that time, etc. etc.

Now I think about it, Kipper's tool may provide similar functionality.
Thanks Kroppy,
I'ill study better WxInspector and Kipper's tools ...

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!
