I'm not familiar with Open CPN, so don't know if it tells you (or
you had to tell it) the Linux name of the device it's using -- if
not the next thing would be to examine the dmesg and/or browse
through /dev to find it.

Then you need to create a symlink in the prefix (.wine directory),
pointing to that device, so that wine can find it.  I remember
seeing details somewhere in the wine documentation, and I *expect*
that winecfg can do this, but have not had occasion to do it myself.
