QtVlm (Christophe) is working on it.

I will announce a "good to go" both here and in the chat, when it is fixed.

Christophe has made a small upgrade to QtVlm 5.3.7 and called it patch2.
This is a temporary solution, that has changed the way that "SOL Interpolation" now can read the grib files from brainaid with the 2x2.148 resolution.
Just click on, and download the new qtvlm.exe file attached below and move it into your existing QtVlm folder(and replace the old one).

Remember afterwards to chek that you have a dot in "SOL Interpolation" in QtVlm/Configuration/Advanced.

Hello all,

I've just uploaded a zip containing this time both 64b and 32b for windows only.

I can try to launch build on other platform as MacOS or linux.

The link: www.virtual-winds.org/oxygen/qtVlm_5.3.7-patch2.zip

In order to make it work I would advise you to copy your current qtVlm to a safe place in order to be able to revert to current offcial qtVlm version. Then replace the qtVlm.exefile from the one in the zip you've downloaded (take the one from the folder corresponding to your arch 32b/64b)

We will release a full new setup on Maitai return.

I have iMac no possibility to open fichier EXE!
ok I'll setup tomorrow a build machine for MacOS
Bimmer - you say copy and replace. Does that mean delete the existing qtvlm.exe and paste the new one? Or should a numbskull like me wait for patch 2 to be issued by Forge?

Please use now the above link and follow the steps I've suggested by keeping safe your current qtVlm folder as a copy.

Just to explain: I'm the original dev of qtVlm but now maitai as taken most of the activity on his side, I'm still doing some stuff like implementing the SOL interpolation in qtVlm (and soon access to SOL boat in qtVlm too). maitai is currently in vacation so even if I know how qtVlm works he is mastering the whole deployment steps. Until he is back we will work with small patches consisting only of new qtVlm.exe file.

I'm in process of uploading mac version too. I'll post the link asap.

It's good for Mac Mavericks! thank you Bimmer & oxygen77 :-)
In mode "standard" not SOL in advanced!

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.
