    Installed the tarball from java and installed it to /usr/java (as root) and now works, but still won't communicate the data to qtVlm. Hmm...

    When I try to run it from Firefox, it opens IcedTea, then fails in an identical way to downloading it and using javaws from the terminal. Using Chrome clicking on the link sends me to java.com.

    Hate to jump in on this, but I'm getting an error on running the NMEA Proxy too.

    Running into an error on unsigned jars.
    (Full error msg: http://pastebin.com/6JNr0BAa )

    Running Linux Mint, get the same error if I run as user or super user (sudo).

    Hopefully not too much of a drift - sorry if it is.

    Point of clarification please m'lud.

    In the description, the boat type is Super Maxi 100, and the download is for VO70v4.

    I presume we shall take the Volvo?

    More very useful posts as ever: thanks for running this, chaps.

    Is this the place to post requests for future articles? (If not, then ignore the rest of this...)

    In the excellent intro to qtvlm, the 'final word' section refers to the need for interpretation of the routing created. I was wondering if there could be a follow-up to this guide, showing what is meant by this, what to be looking for, what potential traps blindly following a routing may lead one into, etc.

    Many thanks!

    I'm getting a 404 for the NOR for this race from the home page. Anyone else?

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. 😊
