Board » Technical Support » REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES

I am having serious problems with the Santa Monica race it that the messages posted will not clear so I am unable to steer my ship or in fact do anything.
However this does highlight a problem that there is no (appears) way to report a technical fault to be looked at quickly and reported back.
This is the second problem recently and it is destroying my enjoyment of SOL - I'm not prepared to spend hours racing just to be told that because someone has been disadvantaged teh race ius scrubbed, yet never seems to happen when I havea problem
I am sorry you are/were having steering problems and some display issues. It is always useful to try and determine if the problem is local or a more general one, and this is what I do:

1. Clear all caches (browser, Flash, DNS)
2. Check that the latest version of Flash is running
3. Run a cleaner such as CCleaner
4. Reboot

If the problem persists, then this might suggest it is a Sailonline problem, rather than an individual one, and the way of obtaining a pretty speedy response is by emailing admin@sailonline.org and we'll always respond as rapidly and usefully as possible.

Thanks for your help. I have done the steps you suggested but to no avail. The problem is only on the 1 race, the Lisbon & timed race both operate normally.
That said this race does work ok on my laptop - the only difference is the laptop is Win7 32 bit & the PC is Wn7 64 bit - not sure if that is a factor?

having been away I have tried this evening and the race is now operating correctly. Can you please advise me what was done and was I the only person to have been affected?
Nothing was done by Sailonline ... sorry, that is not a particularly helpful response for you, as something clearly was amiss, but no-one else reported any issues during this race.

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024


Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
