Does anybody know how to get NAM grib files delivered via email?


GFS is no problem via saildocs,  but can't figure out NAM.


I am using the redport router which has wifi and connects directly to the Iridium phone via usb.  It gets all the work out of getting drivers for different computers to work with the phone.  Plus more than one device can share the internet if you have that requirement.

In Topic: Dear Newport Bermuda Organizing Authority...

+1 The list of things  the organizing authority makes you do just to enter is a long.  But going to be worth it.  Taking High Noon with a crew of 8 juniors and 3 adults.    Part of our Young American Junior Big Boat Team.  


Be very afraid of this 635 mile passage.  It's in the Bermuda Triangle after all! 


For fuck's sake people, it's a few days sail made by thousands of idiots in poorly prepared boats.  Just because it's the biggest race you've ever done doesn't mean it is a Cape Horn rounding.  .

Was at the docklands on a yacht getting fuel this past november.   Wandered over the the Oracle base the was locked tight.  Local worker guy let us in and gave us a full tour.  Met Jimmy and his kid.  Jimmy was very nice and we chit chated for bit.  


Got an up close look at the boats, wings and foils plus all the work shops.


So you never know if you don't try.

I did pay I think about $7 just for the NY event.  The stream at times would not work.  So basically useless.
