Board » Technical Support » Anyone still using BWR? Gribs not loading

I gave up on BWR many months ago when gribs from brainaid would not load. Has anyone else experienced this? I tried again today and these are the error messages from BWR:

grib: grib_seek C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203_1026.grb: Only read 7816 out of 17640 bytes for EntireMsg (offs=1040760)

grib: missing vector data for UGRD, period 29, deleting sequence

grib: Postprocessing failure for sequence 33 (parameter 1988196324)

grib: C:/Program Files (x86)/bluewater/races/Christmas/weather-263-global-gfs-20161203-1026.grb: No usable records found

I have the current version of BWR v.1.87

I'm happy using QtVLm but thought I'd give BWR another try.

Thanks,
Phil (Garagiste)

Lascareno :-)
I wonder why you keep on posting as "sol"!
You're providing a lot of useful info in these forum posts, so why "sol" instead of "Lascareno"

BWR-adepts

if you are sailing SWR 17/18 Leg 4 - Melbourne to Hong Kong do not forget to uncheck the part of the weather that is beyond the 180!

If you do not do that then BWR tells you it can not reach the end-point.

Even much easier is to cut the download grib to 179.

Then BWR just routes without further ado.

BWR users
If you cross the 180 from west to east and you are using autogribloader as source then the gps-position will be on the right side of the chart. And there you can not use it for routing purposes.

If you use brainaids NMEA proxy as source then the GPS-position will be put on the left side of the chart where it can be used for routing.

The grib delivered by AutoGribLoader neither works in BWR.
Here I use the grib delivered by Brainaids Toolbox too.

Lisboa TIMED Race 2018
For the fourth year in succession, Sailonline invite you to Lisboa and Setubal for a TIMED race. A long course designed by psail with the AC72 in mind, this year we will take out our more seaworthy 60ft Trimaran, so that performance loss minimalization, although still important, will become less critical, and finding that best (and longer!) period of favourable winds much more so.
