    taken by an Italian government site of weather forecast:

    PROBLEMA MODELLI: Avviso agli utenti.

    Nell'ultima settimana abbiamo avuto diversi problemi con i modelli: sono saltate alcune "corse" inficiando molti servizi, tra cui le mappe vento&mare.
    Il problema è dovuto alla quasi saturazione della banda internet dell'NCEP (National Center Environmental Prediction della NOAA), causato da una sempre maggiore richiesta di dati dai vari centri del mondo e sopratutto dal recente aumento di risoluzione del modello globale GFS passato da circa 30 km a circa 13 km di risoluzione. Infatti i file disseminati seppur ad una risoluzione minore (di circa 25 km) pesano circa 4 volte di più dei precedenti (circa 300 MB a file).
    Nella segnalazione allegata la NOAA rassicura sul fatto che sono a conoscenza del problema e stanno studiando una soluzione, tra cui un aumento di banda disponibile, previsto per Aprile - Giugno. Fino ad allora faremo del nostro meglio per continuare a garantire il servizio senza interruzioni, scusandoci sin da ora per gli inconvenienti causati e futuri.

    "NCEP Central Operations systems -- the NCEP FTP Server (“ftpprd”) , NOMADS and MAG systems, and the recently-implemented MADIS and MRMS applications, are being affected by an Internet capacity issue at the NOAA Network Operations Center. The manifestation of this issue is slow data retrieval from these services. The root cause of the issue is that these dissemination systems utilize the NOAA Internet link and that link has reached saturation, especially at those times of the day when the major models are being disseminated. The slowness has been exacerbated by the recent GFS model upgrade, which gave users access to the new high-resolution dataset and also some of the existing output files increased in size dramatically with the model resolution increase.

    The plan to address this Internet capacity issue is for the NOAA NOC to increase the capacity of the NOAA Internet link. This activity is currently in the procurement phase, with an FY15Q3 (April – June) implementation goal. NCEP is working closely with the NOAA NOC to track the progress of this upgrade. In the interim, NCEP is investigating some stop-gap measures that could provide some very limited relief.

    We apologize for the impact this has had on our customers. We recognize that the ability to retrieve our products in a timely fashion is very important to our users and I assure you we are working to address the situation.

    Chief, NCEP Central Operations, Production Management Branch"

  • Re: 2014 RACE CALENDAR Q 2
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    Hello guys,
    great job for the new calendar.
    Q1* provides an excellent overview of the quarter, while Q2* is full of useful details.
    I think it would be even more useful to insert in Q2*, for each race, also the date close to the time.
    Is it possible?
    thanks
    Mat

    * only today I realized I have used Q1 and Q2 instead of P1 and P2, I apologize!

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
