...And I don't have any idea why triple clicking does what you say. At least for me with FF it just moves the map as expected.

A new version of the client has been published. You can simply refresh/reload browser tab.

If this new version doesn't work for you, let us know. You can use the older version by appending
?version=old
to the url, or (for the current two races) by clicking the links below.
Dondra to Sanya 2020
BA-Rio 2020

What has been changed? Here is a list of the most important changes (credit to ij):
- Tack/Gybe button label split to either “Tack” or “Gybe”
- POIs show local wind info
- When WX panel is focused, left and right arrow keys step time backwards and forwards
- Minor tweaking to mouse handling code to prepare for touch interface improvements for ruler and steer tools (should not change anything but may still break something)
- Highlight race leader setting
- Attempt to prevent browser’s autocompletion for text input fields
- Chat input text area style changes (one additional line and scrollbar enabled when necessary)
- Boat scale setting
- Boat list save/restore
- UI changes to enable Touch UI
- WX panel styling improvements (roughly constant width)
- Control panel layout tweaks, ranking tab in particular (to solve iPad UI issues)
- Chat odd/even bg color tweak to hopefully avoid some “bg jumps” when new messages appear
- Fix stale boat filter when a boat list that was in “show only” state is deleted
- TWS contours. There are still some horizontal gap artifacts in contours and when wx area appears more than once, only one of them draws contours currently; in practice, neither limits significantly the usefulness of contours. Contour density is configurable through Settings.
- Quick-access buttons for show TWS/TWD (beside the wind arrow/barb)
- Ranking tab click vs mouseup problem (reported to occur with Edge)

PS: for early access to updates like this, you can append
?version=dev
to the URL. This "dev"-version gets updated more frequently (and without notice). Drawback is that there may be more bugs. At this moment the "dev"-version is not ahead any updates.
Guys, so far it works well. Thank you for your time and patience.

As an improvement, could it be possible when you set a DC, that the predictors (both) starting at DC point are shown on the map?

Regards from Altair

Hi Altair,

"Planning predictors" have been suggested also elsewhere and "aiming from DC dot" has been one potential item on my todo list. They are doable, but the former only on medium term as it will require some predictor code refactoring first (I need to do that anyway at some point but it's also somewhat scary given the importance of not breaking the predictor :-)).

Planning predictors, however, is one of those features that would clearly give the client abilities beyond what has been traditionally available and I'd like to see some kind of discussion whether such features are something that should be included into the client or not.

As regards your earlier request about saving the chat messages locally to preserve longer chat history, I'm unlikely to implement that as I view it as an attack vector.
Hi,
Is there a way to get rid of/reduce the "shadow-effect" ??
In the flash version you just had to click on one of the other boats.

I don't understand what "shadow effect" is?

--
i.
OK - it's like you see 2 boats just after each other. The first boat have the small dot where the mast is supposed to be and the second boat is the "shadow". The first boat is a bit more bold.
When you point the cursor on the second boat, the boat name appear down in the left corner. It disappear shortly and become visible again.
Both on FF and chrome.

/SKOVSER
What you describe is caused by the different update times of the fleet, and your own boat. The fleet (all boats) are updated once a minute, so they make jumps of 1 minute. Your own pink boat is updated more frequently, and will jump ahead before the fleet catches up.

Your boat is also part of the fleet, so an version of your boat is updated together with the rest of the fleet once every minute. It looks like it is sailing behind your pink boat. In the Flash client this boat is made invisible, buy you can make it visible by clicking your own name in the leaderboard-tab.

Personally I always liked to see my shadow, so I could better compare how I was doing relative to the fleet. But it may be confusing to have it always visible, especially to new SOLers.

I think you problem would be solved with the following feature:
Make drawing of own boat in fleet invisible unless own boat is selected in the ranking-tab.
Even better may be to have three options in the settings: {always show, never show, only when selected}, with as default one of the last two.
Thank you Kroppy, for an in-depth explanation.
I don't consider it a problem, just a bit annoying ;-)
Your second feature options sounds great - Thanks!

Is it possible to have the "Settings" saved until changed? Right now you have to renew all of your preferred screen features every time you log into a new race. This is a bit irritating.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

This edition will see competitors navigating a challenging 250-nautical-mile course from Durban to East London. Adding to the excitement, this year our SOLers will harness the speed and power of our fleet of Carkeek 40s!

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
