PASSAGE PLANNER FOR THE NSW (AUSTRALIA) COAST

Hello CF friends.

A while ago, I came across an excellent passage planner in excel that I think was prepared by one of the VMRs. Essentially, you typed in a few assumptions such as speed over ground and the correct number for port of departure and arrival and it gave you calculations including arrive time, fuel consumption (more relevant if you're in a stink boat of course!) etc.

Problem is, I cannot find it again! Does anyone know what I am talking about and if so, can you send me the link to it again?

Best -

Fast Forward

File appears to be corrupt? Anyone able to download this? I've just had a Mozilla / adobe flash update so may be a problem at my end - dunno

Cheers

I downloaded it with no problems using Windows Vista 64 and IE.

It is a PDF document with very useful infomation but not an automated planner if that is what the OP was after.
