  • Re: RIP - In Memoriam - Rod
    Board » In memoriam
    Very sad news to hear.
    Rod has been around longer than I have and was a fine competitor. Especially in the practice races which he was always in when I had time to race in those.

    I am in Vermont, not far from where Rod lived in terms of the globe we raced around so many times. It was always nice to see him in races.

    Fair winds Rod.

    Look for tides, currents etc and you will find something like XTide.
    https://flaterco.com/xtide/

    Maybe this will help you to an answer for your question.

    In QTVLM look for configuration>gribs and harmonics.
    I can not imagine it to be useful in SOL. SOL routing does only use weather (grib).

    Hi Kipper1258,

    Is there a way to reduce the size of the "AutoGrib" pop up window?
    _____________________________________
    move your mouse-cursor to the left upper corner of the popup window and resize the popup-window.
    (with mouse leftclick-hold and move.with touchpad tap-hold and move)

    Assuming it is a 'windows' laptop. Mac or other os I do not know 'how to' things.

    If you do not see appear an arrow in a corner then double click somewhere in the top-middle of the popup-window and try again to resize.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
