  • Re: Error in CMD Prompt Accessing AGL
    Board » Technical Support
    I think you see that warning in a DOS window.
    Nothing to worry about.

    Maybe your internet-connection was temporarily somewhat slower.

    Does patience the job and is your AGL after some delay working? All is good.

  • Re: SOLVED_No (2) digits behind the comma
    Board » Technical Discussion
    I was lucky because I use qtvlm wit english language. dot as decimal separator is then standard.

    I never used kroppyer's converter but excel & macros to get dc's into brainaids or autogribloader. And there was the same problem with dots and comma's.

  • Re: No (2) digits behind the comma

    You write
    "(COGs have 3 digits before the comma and 2 digits behind)"

    Use dot . as decimal seperator instead of ,

  • Re: QtVLM and SOL
    Board » Technical Support
    I assume you are talking about seeing AIS-targets in QTVLM.

    question: what do you use to get your boat position into QTVLM?

    When I use brainaid's nmea-proxy then after some seconds the whole fleet around me is shown. Using AGL nothing is shown or after a very long time. Maybe I am not long enough busy with qt to see that happen.

    I'm on windows 11
    I uninstalled openwebstart.
    I installed Icedtea-Web
    brainaid's .jnlp files opened/worked much quicker than with openwebstart.

    (I do not know what IHM is but since you 'have never seen' it how do you know it is 'the worst'}

    Maybe hitting the 'GO TO RACE' button instead of
    '▶ Flash' button solves all your problems.

    And if hitting this button does not work then come back here with more specifics.
    - which operating system do you use?
    - which browser do you use? (opera, firefox, internet explorer, edge to name only a view.

    An adobe flashplayer that works in windows will be difficult/near-impossible to find. (Adobe no longer supports it since December 31, 2020)

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2024

Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April which we always like to celebrate with a race through the Stockholm Archipelago from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to his mooring at Baggensfjärden. Traditionally also, like other celebrations this time of year, this feast has been “moveable”, so on this occasion we will be racing on a Wednesday in one of our latest high-performance 40-footers, the Carkeek 40. Please join us then for this always tricky 30nm race. Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024

Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas.
