How do I add a photo in the label which pops upp when I tick on a pushpin, start dot, course line, etc.?

Race four (150Nm) is now ready to launch. But I check, recheck and check again (very insecure), who check that I have done everything correct?

Any e-mail address?

In some cases is it impossible for me to follow your guide lines.

1. Position start and finish of
longer races clear of immediate
obstacles, as many players
might want to use delayed

Either you race or not. What say´s that some don´t need DC´s in the middle of the race? No, this is NOT a good idea!

2. Fine-tune the Latitude and the Longitude.

Almost impossible as my courses so far are located in very narrow waters. Fine tuning put the lines and pushpins on the "high way". ;)

3. The finish line should be
approximately perpendicular to the
line between the last waypoint and
the finish.

This is just for lazy/late skippers who want to use DC and CC over the line. I think we should try to minimize the numbers of pushpins if possible instead.

4. The length of the finish line should be...

Physical impossible in some of my races as the waters are too narrow.

PS. I don´t want to flash all my mistakes on the Forum. I´m ready to share my courses via the Forum when I know I have done them properly.

IMHO the Caribbean Sprint can and should be re-run many times with preference starting early Fridays. That is a perfect race for a long snowy weekend.
What a great race that is.
I also prefer archipelago races and Caribbean Sprint is one of them.

If you like or prefer fairly short archipelago races, you should know that I have sent Inco four (4) races which I hope will be launched during the upcoming spring 2010.
Dear all,

Race suggestions from all members of the SailOnline community are most welcome!

The race committee has standardized a format that anyone who wants to suggest a new race can use. Just download the attached tutorial and follow the instructions.


Francois (Incognito)
Ladys and Gents,

What is the next race?

I had family issues during the weekend and could not race the "Mini800NM part 2" and the "Figaro Transat" is too much for me to chew.

So, I am sitting on the dock bored and longing for a race.

Please any race, but a long long one.

Thanks all,
To Crew/Inco!

It´s OK for you to launch my proposed races if you like them. Starting with The Classic on the 22nd of May at 12 UTC.

if I follow the link to propose an race an empty pages open! I guess I make mistake somewhere but I dont know where! any body can help?
If you are referring to the link in Incognito's first post in this thread to the Google Earth Race Proposals PDF, you can find that file here:


I saved a copy there when someone else was having trouble opening it as well.

Thank you Philip.. I got yours:..
Newport RI to Bermuda. One of the Big 3 ocean races (with Fastnet & Sydney Hobart). Starts 19th June 2010. I can write the info for it.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

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.
