We are doing the fastnet in two weeks time. Currently we are doing our routing by running a wind routing using gribs on qtvlm and then consulting the admiralty tidal book to make a decision on where we should be going. its pretty rough.
We arent looking to spend a fortune so deckman is probably out, but does anyone have any suggestions for low cost software solutions that will account for wind and tide?
On another note what are the options for data logging software for windspeed awa bs etc for refining the polars we are currently using?
Any thoughts would be great
