    You can just omit the timestamp parameter from the get command to receive the boat info only.

    I suppose it could be done. Excel 2013 has two new functions called webservice and filterxml which you could probably use to pull boat.xml into Excel and display what you want.

    So, that's what they were doing.
    Who knew.

    What you see as the AIS function of the NMEA proxy is really nothing more than one more way of receiving some of the very same information that the server sends to the race client over an unencrypted TCP connection. The NMEA proxy just delivers that information in a different format, namely in NMEA sentences.

    Not everybody has to rely on the proxy to get to that data. So, as was intended, the NMEA proxy levels the playing field, more than anything, because now that information is available to all, and not just to those who know where to look.

    You misunderstand the option in the NMEA proxy; it is not intended to cutoff your boat to the outside world, but rather to control how much information the proxy receives. You have to realize that the NMEA proxy is only a nice wrapper around data that is available to anyone with basic TCP networking knowledge.

    Can't comment on the fonts issue as I am not using Chrome. As for the circles, they only appear if you have wind barbs selected in the Options.

    <del>One more thing I just remembered: in QtVlm, under File -> Configuration, there's a GPS tab. On it is a COM port entry field and an 'Activate' checkbox. This tab is intended for output of GPS data, not for receiving GPS data. Not sure if it makes any difference, but just make sure the Activate checkbox is unchecked. Just might be creating a feedback loop.</del>

    Never mind, doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    Not sure what you mean with 'quircer'? Does that mean BWR is working? If it is, you have to use a different COM port for QtVlm. Both can't be using the same COM port.

    In NavMonPc, on the "Virtual Ports A,B,C" tab, for each port there's a Monitor button just below the Connect/Disconnect buttons. Click on the Monitor button of your COM port to check and see if thge NMEA data is being output.

    Also, as I recall, NavMonPc's AIS proximity alert tends to wreck havoc on QtVlm. The alert usually gets activated just after start up. Click on AIS in the menubar and if there's an alert active, there'll will be a bunch of yellow boxes near the page bottom. Click on Ignore Target to cancel the alarm.

    Not much else I can think of, I'm afraid.

    Good luck,
    Philip

    Hi Bimmer,
    could you possibly document the procedure for establishing contact between qtvlm and SOL via Brainaid (or with BWR), if that's the way to describe the issue:-)

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Elba Rendezvous 2022
Another new race in the SOL calendar. This time a sprint along the route of the classic regatta triangle proposed by Renegade. The theatre of our struggle will be Golfo Di Follonica with its start and finish at Piombino. More buoys were set up in front of Porto Azzurro on Elba Island and next to Punta Ala. One lap of 38 NM will be done with the help of Beneteau Figaro. Carefully plan the direction to start 😊 and "Let the force be with you."

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
