Hi
I wondered if a simple program could be produced to make sailwave results work on a raspberry Pi with the aid of a screen etc.

If you can install wine on it then it should work #maybe #might

You managed to get one?  You are way ahead of most of us.

I like to take pictures of sailing, but I'd rather be sailing!

It cant run Windows, so unsure how you will run Sailwave.

If you want to run just sailwave, I would find a cheap PC for that purpose.

Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else

Hi All
Farnell tell me mine should be with me soon. Thanks for the advice about
Wine I will look that up.
As for the comment about cheap PC at 30 for this it does not get much cheaper plus it is a GB invention which i wanted to support.
Once it arrives I will let people know how I get on.
Regards
Gordon

I don't think you can run Wine on the PI as it uses a Broadcom chip and not an Intel x86
