    Here's the file (did not work last time)
  • Re: AGL 14 Issues
    Board » Technical Discussion
    There has been a change to the raceinfo file on the server which is causing AGL to crash on DC checking. This is happening in the Buenos Aires to Punta del Este race, and I am not sure how long it will continue. The fix is to edit the auth_race_info file in the SOLGrib xml folder, and do the following:
    1. Shut down AGL.

    2. Add the line

    <tilemap>i</tilemap>

    after the line <maxlat>-33.0</maxlat>

    You will need to check the resolution of the maps on the Misc tab. Use <tilemap>i</tilemap> for intermediate, <tilemap>h</tilemap> for high resolution.

    3. Save and close the file
    4. Go into the maps folder and delete any files in there.
    5. Restart AGL

    If you still have a blank graphics screen on checking DCs, delete the file autoGribLoader.ini. You will unfotunately lose all your settings, and will need to reconfigure AGL.

    I have attached a working copy of the auth_race_info file for this race.

    New version that supports V15.12.0.

    IMPORTANT: This is a significantly different version from previous ones. You need to delete all the folders in the target folder (where you run qtLinks.bat from) before running the linking batch file.

    I've also included the batch file I use to launch qt from my race folder, which you can edit to suit.

    Note: I did have an issue with one of my instances which kept crashing. Copying the qtVlm.ini from a working instance and overwriting the fault one fixed it. Obviously, you will need to edit the Configurations as they will be the same as the source instance.

    New version here called AGL14_3_8_update.zip and must be installed as an update. Fixes the wrong bearing being used for VMC calculation in the boat data table.

    There's a problem with AG14InstallDir.bat. Change the first line to
    setx AG14InstallDir "C:\SOL\Java14\\"

    and run it again. I've also put a copy on OneDrive that you can download

    A new version is here. There is an update and the full version. If AGL is already installed, you only need the update. This versions allows the OpenGL engine to be turned off and will still work with basic graphics. Also has a couple of bug fixes.

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
