Board » Flag Officers » Race proposals » 2 courses on Australian coast

This thread is getting quite long. I suggest to post the next race proposal in a new forum thread.

Regards,

Francois
================

Here is a kmz of 2 courses in Australia, not real races, but in the same location as real races. I didnt think the IRL races would be so good for SOL so I made these up.
The Whitsunday Islands race could easily have a sprint race though, as I mentioned in another post, there is a popular week long regatta held there each year consisting of 1-2 races per day. As you will see there are plenty of islands (74 in total) to use as waypoints.
Also, I double posted this kmz in the thread describing how to construct them, sorry I forgot there was a new forum for race proposals. But there are a few minor alterations between the file posted there and this one, with this one being most recent.
Thanks, and let me know if there is anything I can do committee-wise, happy to help.

Two nice races, Aaron. A bit longer than the usual format, but the race committee will find a way to cope. :)

Three small remarks.

In the Whitsundays Race, I understand that the first waypoint is not meant to define the course, but to restrict the playground. However, that is technically not possible in SOL. Every waypoint has to define the course.

If we keep the first waypoint, the course will thus require the players to pass to its EAST. I therefore suggest to simply remove it. The playground will be interesting enough without.

Also, you need to name the finish and the finish line.

In the 'Tour Down Under', you have not named the first two waypoints.

A somewhat less important point, but one which I notice in many race proposals. The race characteristics should be part of the course properties, not the race folder properties. The reason is that when you double-click on the course, its properties show up automatically. That's important because I am rather lazy.
;)

Regards,

Francois

Aaron, I would like also to know whether you would prefer your races to be scheduled as week races or as week-end races, and what starting time you would like.
Sorry been off busy for a bit...
I will make those changes, then upload them again, and scheduling doesnt matter to me, whenever they will best fit in with the overall schedule is up to the RC :-)

Again apologies, I lost net connection for a while,, here are modifications you requested.
Don't expect you had any shortage of races anyway :-)

I have picked up on the second of your two races and will be setting it up in SOL presently - just thought you would like to know it isn't off the radar!

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. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

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.
