The “odd” character is a “high octet preset” character. To troubleshoot
you’ll need to provide both the CSV and BLW files that you are using.
(When downloading the CSV from the Sailwave website your computer can
corrupt or modify the file so one needs to check the actual file on your
computer; the one on the Sailwave website seems to be OK.)
In the past, I’ve seen these kinds of weird characters in emails sent
from a Macintosh computer. Windows, Mac and Linux had different
end-of-line characters (since Mac now uses a version of Unix - Linux is
also a version of Unix - there might only be two such versions today).
I’d suspect that some part of the “save” process (either saving the CSV
or saving the BLW) is mucking up the end-of-line for the rating.
I’d upload your two files to file.io and then provide the links here
(I’m assuming the files only contain sailing information and not bank
To implement Jon’s suggestion - click on competitor and edit the rating
field by selecting and deleting everything (I’d probably save at that

view source (in Firefox right-click and pick “View Page Source”). The
offending character is obvious although not displayed in Firefox.
