The sol-courses is not a secret :-)
...one of the guys behind the game...
Attached a kmz file with all courses setup in SOl, and an Excel file with all races run in SOL. Both until November 2009.

Hello,

I added Ramsgate as a waypoint to both: the nonstop RoundBritain &Ireland and the 5-leg-version.
Have fun :)

PS: I am on finishing the Caribbian 600 and we simply change the name, no?? :-)
re: dates: feel free to start the proposed races whenever it will fit in. Probably we will have the opportunity to start them again at the correct date and time.

Take care

Stu/Berth
It seems that the list in SailOnline race archive original.xls not complete. I can't find
Miami to Kingstown dec 02nd
Rome to Tripoli dec 06th
Round White Island Race nov 26th
Round White Island Race 2 dec 15th
Dubai to Muskat Race nov 25th
etc.

Correct erniss. These files go until November 2009, as I have indicated in my post. Mid-November 2009 in fact, when the race committee started its work.

The race committee is mainly using these two files to find older races that can be rerun. We therefore do not need them to be updated on a frequent basis.

This is my humble proposal for a race offshore of Rio de Janeiro.
The circuit is based on an actual race that I sailed a few times.
There are some modifications to make more exciting for Sol.
I designed the race in Google Earth as per Francois (Incognito) tutorial. This is my first time working in Google Earth, so please review it as necessary.
Cheers,
Antonio (Tuze1)

Nice race, Antonio. When does the real one take place? Is there a web page?

Two remarks regarding the kmz file:

- You should give a name to the start, the waypoints, and the finish. Example: 'Copacabana - Waypoint 5'

- I would merge the invitation into the description, perhaps as follows:

'A 460 NM race in the waters offshore of Rio de Janeiro. For those of us tired of shovelling snow and walking in boots, an opportunity to wear flimsy T-shirts and flip-flops. We set sail from the Iate Clube of Rio de Janeiro, then head to the magnificent city of Buzios, turn around to beautiful Ilhabela, and finish in Rio.'
Hi Francois,

Here it is the updated "kmz" file with your comments.
I really don't know if they still do this race in RL. This was 20+ years ago when I still lived overthere.
We used to sail on 1/2tonners and OneTonners. It was a 3 days affair.
Here on SOL we could do (I think) in less than 48hours on a VO70. Maybe even less if we get good winds.
Also, the real race didn't allow to go thru the Ilhabela strait, but for SOL this would more interesting.
Note that in the leg from Rio to Buzios there are many little island that here on SOL we will be able to cut corners and again make the race more interesting.
The idea here is to re-live my childhood.
I hope we all have fun.
It will all depend on the wind. If we get a weekend with light winds this could turn into a painful race. But, we sailors know that already. Don't we ?
Thanks again for considering this race.
Cheers,
Antonio (Tuze1)

Hello,

Find attached a proposal for a race around the Frisian Isles. It is a non existing race so i hope it is useable this way.

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
