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.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
