curious if there is a similarly easy interface for the GFS? or on that note if anyone has compared the reanalysis  data from the two models?  I am assuming there is little difference but interested to see.

I am curious how expedition knows the availability of GRIBs from NOAA.  Specifically how it decides which times to make available in the "Run" dropdown?  Is it static or does it require an internet connection to ping the server.

Also does anyone have the availability times for the SailDoc gribs?  I am trying to build a list of availability times for the different models on the different delivery channels.


Thanks

General Discussion » How to create a starting line. » 6/29/2017 5:23 am

Sorry if this is a basic question but I am having a pretty tough time trying to figure this out.
 
I am building a route for a race and want to have it start at a starting line.  What I am trying to do seems pretty simple but for the life of me cannot figure it out.
 
Simplest example, three marks, one is the starboard end, and one the port end, and one the first mark.
 
What I assumed would work was create the marks, build a route with the marks and then (via the right mouse pop up) set #1 to the starboard end and #2 to the port and all would be good, but no joy.
 
How do I get marks 1 & 2 to be the starting line and not the first two marks?  Every thing I have tried results in the first leg being #1 to #2 instead of a starting line and then #3. 
 
Or at least that is what I am assuming, I have start line turned on in display setting and when I check the route details it includes the “starting line” in the total distance.
 
Any help would be much appreciated as I am pulling my hair out a bit on this.

Thanks
John

Trying to figure out if Expedition can do an optimal route for LongPac.

The course is basically start under the Golden Gate Bridge and cross 126 40' and then back to Golden Gate.  You may cross 126 40' anywhere you like.  Obviously the shortest course is to sail due west cross the line and then sail due east, but that is not always the fastest course, sometimes a point north works better sometimes south.

I know I can set up a few different courses each with a mark spaced out alone that line of Longitude and optimize each one and check the results but I am curious if there is a way to set this course up in Expedition and have it find the optimal route?

Thank
John

I am just getting upto speed with Expedition and am looking for some help with getting all the switches set correctly.

The issue I am having is the ENC charts are full of clutter and the ATONs are huge.  Any suggestions as to setup would be much appreciated.  

I would prefer to use the ENC but all the clutter is actually covering up some pretty important stuff, like the Golden Gate and the Farallones! 



Thanks!
