Bol d'Or Mirabaud

How to get the winds in this race ??

winds will not be provided by NOAA, therefore vrtoutoulz will probably not be able to provide the winds. Winds are changing every hour with new forecasts every 3 hours.

Is there a possibility to get the winds from virtualregatta ??

well ---- vrtoutoulz is providing the winds for the Bol d'Or and I do get the winds in the positions as they are shown on the interface ........
as the winds in this race are interpolated, I tried to make an interpolation in VRTools - but could not make it work .........

is it possible to do it ? and if, how ?

does work in the frozen race though - but in the Bol d'Or the ruler-tool just doesn't show any winds .........

........ might be a problem with the size of the wind-grid ............ 0.2 for the Bol d'Or where as in the other races it is far larger : 10

A few years ago I tried to adapt vrtool to be used in
the Lake Leman Regatta, which was also small scale.
The NOAA winds downloader can be configured in many ways,
but in the end the underlying forecast has one degree resolution.
I don't know where/how this regatta winds are obtained.
