What is Virtual Loup-De-Mer?

It's a web-based real-time Sailboat-routing simulation. It uses real weather data (data for wind strength and direction are updated every 6 hours - GMT 3h40, 9h40, 15h40 & 21h40). GRIB file is available here: http://grib.v-l-m.org/ GRIB files contains wind info in 3hour steps and 0.5° grid and is interpolated to be used in the game. Boat polar charts are similar to real boats, boat speed and direction are updated every 5 minutes (or less in some very short races). Races will be organised frequently.

In the navigation bar on the left, you will find links toward VLM documentation : Documentation and tools associated with VLM : Tools

As well as links toward the Forum (hosted by La Taverne) or the Chat
