  • Re: Aaron James Gage - 1971-2012
    Board » In memoriam
    These news bring me so much sadness. We have lost a friend, and the world has lost a bright mind that had so much more to give. Aaron was one of those people that you knew burned bright from the first time you talked to him. Always great, always striving to learn, always passionate.

    My thoughts go to his family in these hard times. Aaron, you will live on in our memories. Rest in peace.

    I removed the contents of the Schakel's list since it is only work in progress and does not represent a true/complete outline of the future races. Sorry :)

    Not sure about the cursor thing - sounds like a flash bug. Apple is not going to kill flash - they're just not going to ship it by default with Safari.

    You could also try Chrome - it ships with its own flash version embedded!

    How long do you wait before reloading - the client SHOULD show the new command result within 30 seconds (and most likely < 15 seconds). Are you behind some caching web proxy?

    Well, the forum software basically sucks, that's the closest answer I can give ;) I've started a slow process of looking at alternatives but integrating them into the website is a good chunk of work...
  • Re: The "two boat rule".
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    The one boat per race per user rule is mainly for two reasons:

    1) To avoid situations where people cover multiple strategies

    2) To avoid users taking up "more than their share" of server resources (the number of boats that can be handled by the system without server upgrades is finite.

    So in general, no, it's not allowed to have multiple boats at any time, much because 2) will always be an issue.

    Hmm, yes, knowing that a lot of the SOL battles are taking place in office environments, maybe a more discrete sound should be used?
  • Re: "Rounding Marks"
    Board » General Discussion
    The result of todays excitement is a server bug. Normally the server "un-registers" the rounding if you go back outside the mark. We are currently investigating this bug and will also most likely correct affected boats.

    Please DO NOT do that, it's a very old version, among other thing containing a nasty bug caused A LOT of data to be downloaded unnecessarily.

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.
