If you want Qt to row you into the wind, use the attached.

An argument between Poseidon and Aeolus has been resolved and your rowers will now be able to row at near as damn it 2kn, even if Aeolus ins't playing ball and the wind drops to zero. Use the revised polar below if you want to consult the god Qutyvelomis.

either one; they're the same

Is the AGL working with this? I get an error launching it.

Error interpolating boat polar data.
@Renegade Same here. AGL is stumbling on the polar for some reason. I don't know if Kipper can produce a fix on time. Even a way to switch off the boat polar and just download the WX updates for the grib to be used in routing programs would do for me...
Is the BrainAid polar the same?
I just found a workaround to get AGL to work for downloading the WX updates and for setting DCs.
Here is what to do:
1)In the folder you have set up for this race go to the "SOLGribXml" subdirectory and find the "auth_raceinfo_1388" file there. You can open it in a simple text editor like Notepad.
2)Scroll down in the text until you see this line: "<name>Trireme Olympias v2</name>". All the numbers after that point are the polar data that AGL is failing to read for some reason.
3)Do the same for an earlier race. I used "auth_raceinfo_1386", which was the Darwin to Perth race, but any other race will do. Locate the same boat data in this file, and copy everything starting with "<tws_splined>0 1 2 3 4..." until "</vpp> </boat>".
4)Now paste this data in the file for race 1388, replacing the boat data it failed to use.
5) So what we have done is copy in working, but wrong, polar data to bypass the interpolation error AGL has with the Trireme. Now, save this tweaked "auth_raceinfo_1388" file and start AGL again and it will work normally for pulling in the WX updates or editing your DCs. It will not work for some of the functions that require the correct polar.

Zorba - Has Andrew been contacted to solve this issue in AGL?
Hi Bimmer,
I think Bonk has included the person who created AGL with the observations and questions we had about AGL failure to interpolate the trireme polar chart. I don't know if there has been any answer.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
