An argument between Poseidon and Aeolus has been resolved and your rowers will now be able to row at near as damn it 2kn, even if Aeolus ins't playing ball and the wind drops to zero. Use the revised polar below if you want to consult the god Qutyvelomis.

Is the AGL working with this? I get an error launching it.

Error interpolating boat polar data.
@Renegade Same here. AGL is stumbling on the polar for some reason. I don't know if Kipper can produce a fix on time. Even a way to switch off the boat polar and just download the WX updates for the grib to be used in routing programs would do for me...
Is the BrainAid polar the same?
I just found a workaround to get AGL to work for downloading the WX updates and for setting DCs.
Here is what to do:
1)In the folder you have set up for this race go to the "SOLGribXml" subdirectory and find the "auth_raceinfo_1388" file there. You can open it in a simple text editor like Notepad.
2)Scroll down in the text until you see this line: "<name>Trireme Olympias v2</name>". All the numbers after that point are the polar data that AGL is failing to read for some reason.
3)Do the same for an earlier race. I used "auth_raceinfo_1386", which was the Darwin to Perth race, but any other race will do. Locate the same boat data in this file, and copy everything starting with "<tws_splined>0 1 2 3 4..." until "</vpp> </boat>".
4)Now paste this data in the file for race 1388, replacing the boat data it failed to use.
5) So what we have done is copy in working, but wrong, polar data to bypass the interpolation error AGL has with the Trireme. Now, save this tweaked "auth_raceinfo_1388" file and start AGL again and it will work normally for pulling in the WX updates or editing your DCs. It will not work for some of the functions that require the correct polar.

Zorba - Has Andrew been contacted to solve this issue in AGL?
Hi Bimmer,
I think Bonk has included the person who created AGL with the observations and questions we had about AGL failure to interpolate the trireme polar chart. I don't know if there has been any answer.

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2024


Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April which we always like to celebrate with a race through the Stockholm Archipelago from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to his mooring at Baggensfjärden. Traditionally also, like other celebrations this time of year, this feast has been “moveable”, so on this occasion we will be racing on a Wednesday in one of our latest high-performance 40-footers, the Carkeek 40. Please join us then for this always tricky 30nm race. Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!

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!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024


Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.
