Load the file in another grib viewer (zygrib, adrena, opencpn, squid, whatever) to check if it is correct or not.
Good morning Philippe.

Yesterday I've made the sugested test with zxyGrib on two consecutive WRF gribs and got the same problem: only a 24 hr period.
I'll have a go with Adrena and open, and be back after.
Sail Fair.
Then the problem is not in qtVlm, but in the grib file itself...
Ok, back.
And the news are not good.

Both Adrena and openCPN have the same problema: they can't load the WRF Grib file to full extent.

If the common denominator is the GRIB file, the problem is there.

I'll contact Eddie / "brainaid" with c/c to Huib.

Thank you Philippe.
Sail Fair.
Except that for me, it's a good news ;)
Viva all.

I'm having an issue in the "Import" qT routes using a "*.json" file format previously exported from qT (with the same format).

It doesn't work.

Post annotated by kroppyer-admin :
sol's display name was changed to glenan by someone (now reverted). You were logged on as sol when you posted.
What is happening?
The previous post (the json file import issue) was made by me (psail), not glenan!?!
Sail Fair.
Ok, fixed, thanks for reporting it.

We are almost ready to release qtVlm 5.4.0. Maybe you want to give it a try and check that nothing is broken concerning SOL?

There is a beta version for windows available here:

Hi Philippe.
For your information I have just posted this in the english chatrooms of the present ongoing races, The Valletta sprint and the RTWR 2016:

AWKR 2024

The Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta celebrates and promotes women's sailing in Australia. Comprising a week of intense racing on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, the event has grown to become Australia’s premier women’s regatta and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and over the past several years, Sailonline has been delighted to have been invited to offer all-comers (women and men) a virtual opportunity to race the Bay during AWKR week. This year, it’s an imaginary 80-miler in Sun Fast 3300s, which should prove a proper online challenge.

Nuuk RTI Sprint 2024

Welcome to Nuuk, capital of Greenland. It holds the title of warmest city in Greenland and is located at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the east shore of the Labrador Sea. The fjord is clear of ice, daylight plentiful, perhaps a tiny chill in air. This is the final sprint of Q2 and we have a new course for you. It is time to race in Greenland.
