Board » General Discussion » New QtVlm version.

Viva all SOLers.

There's a new qTVlm version (routing software).
A small bug in my qT: after the routing process is finished when you export it to a CSV format file it doesn’t’ generate the “TWS” column - see also included “CSV” file.

Meanwhile I’ve noticed that qTVlm went to the Android App gallery.
Downloaded and installed it. The only issue is now to find out a NMEA working program to connect a SOL boat with the qTVlm app.
Any ideas?

See Huib / kroppyer's solution elsewhere in forum at http://sailonline.org/board/thread/12829/converting-a-qtvlm-route-to-brainaid-dcs/?page=1#post-13441
It works for me but I will need to get used to qtVlm v5 first!

Viva Go4.

The solution for this issue is not in the conversion to the brainaid DC's format.
The problem here is the CSV file that is generated and exported from qTVlm: it is incomplete.
In my case doesn't give the “TWS” column values.
It’s a qTVlm program bug.

Anyhow thank you for the info.
Sail Fair.
Viva Huib,

Thank you for your intervention.

A Big Hug!
Sail Fair.
If you update qtVlm to 5.0 -15 please note that the kroppyer conversion for SOL DCs reverts to the original version, i.e. http://sol.kroppyer.nl/qtvlm2dc/ , because the csv export file format has been corrected to 'as it was before'.
New program .... bugs.
When you edit a calculated route, select to show it and also the "Display data from roadbook at grib date" the program crashes invariably.

In some of the menus, the French language is mixed with the English when the chosen option for the language is "English".

New update for qTVlm (v. 5.0-17).
The former issue with the "Display data from roadbook at grib date" crash is solved as also the language one (French vs. English in the menus).

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!

Finland-Sweden Archipelago Raid 2023
In 2013, SOLer "JakeS" in cooperation with "Smo" created his own version of the extreme Archipelago Raid catamaran race. The real race through the beautiful Finnish and Swedish archipelago is considered a "nightmare and a great adventure", so in our sixth run of this challenge at 415 nautical miles, our determination and skills will be tested again! This year, we changed the Italia14.98 to a Cape 31. Take care when cornering and brake early enough.
