    @kipper
    I have attached some text with, at the end, the content of a batch file that will set the environment variables ag14installdir and ag14version correctly.
    If you put in in d:\navigation\sailing\test_agl\
    then everyting will work wthout further ado.

  • BWR polar San Francisco - New York
    Board » Technical Discussion
    I use BWR as router and brainaid's website for downloads.
    (http://sol.brainaid.de/sailonline/toolbox/)
    The <vo70_leg4.pol> does not work adequately.
    <vo70_leg4.txt> gives good routings.

    From the same site I download the grib.
    Reason:Kipper's AGL gribs do not work in BWR.

    maybe academic content because I could be the only one who still uses BWR.
    Before BWR I used Sailplanner.
    And that sorts me into the oldtimer solers I think.

    Why are you using values greater than 180 in the longtitude in
    for example <wpt lat="-35.2464" lon="305.47"> in race #1550
    and as contrast the more usual negative values in
    <wpt lat="-37.0972" lon="-12.3205"> in race #1558

  • Re: Batch file that can create multiple instances of qtVlm
    Board » Technical Discussion
    After an intial mistake I made in changing the directory name in 'qtVlmLoc=...' all works.

    Did not now your use of 'mklink /H' and 'mklink /J' in 'qtLinks_1.bat'
    Clever.

    I learned something new for me.
    Thank you.

  • race info not reachable
    Board » Technical Discussion
    For example the url for the tasman double leg 2 you are calling is:
    https://sol.brainaid.de/notice/notice_1533.html

    It should be
    http://sol.brainaid.de/notice/notice_1533.html

    was too early :) other info links do work because they do not have 's' behind http.

    RE: 14_3_1_update - there is no .zip file in the folder, only an .rar . Is it someplace else? Looking forward to using that BBQ feature!

    -----
    Assuming you are on windows you can use the free tool '7-zip' to unpack .rar files.

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. 😊
