Page: Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next Last

I want to propose some races to be race in Mini 6,50 boats like "Les Sables - Azores - Les Sables", do I have to post the boat's polars too?
SOL already has polars for a Mini 650.
:)
We have a polar for the mini650.

Last october we did the 'Poor mans race', a race in two legs from Charente via Madeira to Salvador Brasil.

So keep in mind that those 2 legs already exist in SOL (you don't need to remake them)

But of course, the race you proposed is slightly different... looking forward to your proposal!

(I am also a mini650 fan!)
my other boat is a kiteboard =)
Now that you mentioned (leg races) I have some more (newbie) questions about them:

1 - Should we post ONE kmz with all legs or separate them in several diferent races.

2 - How do the results work for those that are not members of SOL if the legs are considered diferent races. Do they keep there position from leg to leg? Restart every race?

(Sorry to ask, probably alot of SOL racers already know the answers, but I never raced a leg race before)
1. I prefer a separate kmz for each leg.

2. It is easy to create a separate ranking for a series of races. We did so for example for the 3 legs of the Bosphore - Bretagne Race (link at the bottom of right column). However, you need to join the SYC to be included in any ranking except the ones for individual races.

Thus, the message is: please join the SYC!
;)

Francois

Here we go again...

I need help to translate a traditional koordinate pos. N13"26.48´to the system Google Earth use.

Is just to divide 26 with 60 minutes and then divide 48 with 60 seconds?

Or does anyone have any better formula to convert my old pos. to N13.xxxxxx?

Is there a Polar for Linjett40 available?

I don´t know so much about sailing boats.
Is it possible to upload a picture of boat to the .kmz-folder in Google Earth?
You can change Google Earth coordinate system in Tools/Options

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
