I will try setting up a Google Calendar. Never worked with it before but it looks promising.
Features are: I can give people the right to add/edit/etc events. All events are public. You can easily embed this calendar in any website. Or you can just import the calendar into your Office suite or iCal for Mac...
--------------------


I was indeed thinking of something like that. I use a yahoo mailbox, which provides both a mailbox and a calendar, plus other things. Were you thinking of using a google mailbox, or another google application? Might be a good idea to combine calendar and mailbox at once ...

In my idea, SOLers should be encouraged to send their race suggestions to this mailbox. Therefore, I would like to first get the green light from SOL administrators.

We also need to think under what name we create the mailbox. Probably something like SailOnline.RaceCommittee

I took a quick look at google mail and google calendar. Unlike Yahoo, mailbox and calendar seem to be separate applications.

Perhaps that it is better so. I was already thinking that we might use more than one calendar:
- One calendar for real races
- One calendar for races suggested by SOLers
- One calendar for races decided by Race Committee

Please let me know if you need any email lists etc setup, I could set up a sailonline.org google apps account.
look here for calendar

There seems to be a bug in the timezone. Trying to solve that.

Other committee members that are interested in looking into the calendar from an admin point of view, pass me your email:

Yes, that would be nice Kalle.

All the members of the race committee should have access to this mailbox. Is that possible?

I was also wondering what would happen if several members of the race committee try to access the mailbox at the same moment.

What email address were you thinking of BTW?

Francois
Apart from the fact wheither we should have a seperate email(list), I think race requests are better gathered via a forum. This keeps them (and the discussion about it) more open for everybody to see and contribute.

This would keep things within the userbase and will keep the SRC (sailonline race committee) more open, less secret...

An emaillist which forwards all incoming mail at something like racecommittee@sailonline.org to all our private mailaccounts could be used for internal communication. But this could also be done in the forum. Advantages of using the forum instead of mail is the fact that all communication is preserved on the server. There is no need to maintain the mailinglist (less hassle for SOL-people) and again the open character of the SRC.

Just my thoughts, but I think it is best to keep things as simple as possible. All we really need to operate as a SRC is
a) Own category within the forum
b) A Calendar app of some sort
c) A lot of ideas for races... =)

I just discovered that Yahoo has a 'group' feature that could nicely meet our needs:

http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/

There might be something similar in Google.
I just discovered you'll need a google account to access the google Calendar app as an admin.

I am happy to input/partake in a committee.

Will the committee vote on stuff?. . or will a chairman make final decisions ?(in which case perhaps the chair should be unnamed to stop the poor guy/gal being hassled?

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.

Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas.
