Re: Volvo Ocean Race

Thanks - http://yb.tl/Links/VOR2017

​You just need to use VOR2017 in Exp's YB Tracking.

​You can tell Exp's scheduler (from the application menu) to poll the positions at regular intervals.

The API option can be used to retrieve old positions.

Re: Volvo Ocean Race

Thanks Nick, have tried scheduler and it seems to run once then deselects itself and stops running. Your manual says it will do this if the report is old. Is there something I'm doing wrong or something they are doing?? The boats file has more boats than entered and are using random yellow brick boat Id's so they are not going overboard with making it easy!!

Re: Volvo Ocean Race

1. It sounds great, but I can't see any boats on the map or in "Tracking" at Race Tracking menu. I have put vor2017 into the YB Tracking. I can see a list of YB boats in the Boat Editor. What to do?
2. Someone that has a polar for VO65 in Expedition format?

Thanks in advance :-)

Re: Volvo Ocean Race

Same here. Everything going well until yesterday; my last downloaded tracking update was 1948UT. I suspect that it is a YB Issue.

Re: Volvo Ocean Race

Saw chatter elsewhere that the YB  link was discontinued, can down load  the position  report  in  either  "SQUID" or "ADRENA" formats. Reformatted to match MIddle Sea  Race file format and  it uploaded boats,
​at which point  I found that I had all 112 of those boats still loaded. Could  not delete them....
​removed  boatids file etc  no effect

​Any suggestions on how to  clean out old  boats? and easiest  manner to  bring in positions if YB not  working ?

Re: Volvo Ocean Race

The boats are stored in the database, normally Expedition.mdb.
