  • 2023 RANKINGS BY NATION - INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    The rankings by Nation have seen in 2022 a clear limit in their formula:

    The moment one Nation (USA) has a combination of very high participating numbers … AND … a very high level of collective skills, the developing results of the TEAM formula leave no space for any kind of competition for top spot to any other Team in the SOL arena.

    In actual facts the GOLD for Team USA has never been in danger throughout the year, and the only interesting development to be seen there has been about the developing winning USA TRIO.

    A lot of effort and brainstorm has been invested behind the scenes as to how revamping interest in that competition, but so far no fair and easy to implement solution has been found. Another attempt will be made during 2023.

    SO :

    The Rankings by Nation ( INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM) scheme will be continued in 2023, without changes.

    The Rankings by Nation thread is here in the SYC partition of the Forum because, whilst the INDIVIDUAL rankings by Nation are open to everyone irrespective of membership , the TEAM ones are reserved to SYC members.

    Attached underneath you find 2 DOCUMENTS:

    One illustrates the mechanicals of the rankings scheme (by Nation both Individual and Team)

    The other one illustrates the mechanicals that will lead to reward the individual SOLers (by Skipper both Individual and Team)

    At the end of each calendar month an up to date situation will be posted here for everyone to look at and plan improvements ! ;)

    Please feel free to comment or ask for any clarification writing to coord@sailonline.org

    I will publish here for everyone information the most important comments and clarification requests.

    Happy 2023 SOLing !! ;)
  • 2023 CHAMPIONSHIPS NORs
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Championships
    SRC is pleased to announce
    THE 2023 SOL CHAMPIONSHIP NORs ;)
    ________________________________________
    For 2023 we want to continue with some change, aimed to see some evolution in the years to come.

    Two out of the main four Championships will not change format in 2023.

    The ALL ROUND Championship, with its 4 quarters portraying four different groups of boat types and sizes has been successful in 2022 and will continue.

    The Ocean Championship, as always the most appealing to the majority of SOLers, will carry no change.

    After some debate we have reduced the number of Sprint races valid for the Championship to 12 (3 per quarter) but actually increased the number of sprint races for the sprint maniacs to 24 total , 12 of which non valid for the Championship. Twice a month it will be " hands on till time" for many, but careful to identify from the relevant codes which races are Sprint Championship and which are not ! ;)

    Good news for many around the world ! :
    each quarter of the Sprint Championship will see start times favourable to each of the three main areas of the world (Europe-Americas-FarEast) whilst last quarter will see one race with start time suitable for each of the three areas ( more details in calendar)

    Timed races Championship goes back to 12 (one each month). This will offer more opportunity for many newcomers to test SOLing in the Timed arenas that will be available during more than 50% of the time in 2023.

    In a nutshell :

    OCEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (one each month) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    TIMED CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (three each quarter) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (three each quarter) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    ALL ROUND CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (one each month) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards


    SUPERSOLER 2022
    This year again it will be the summa of 48 Championship races (12 OCCH + 12 TRCH + 12 SPRCH + 12 ARCH) and will allow 6 discards.

    Happy Championships SOLing in 2023 !
    ;)

  • 2023 SMPF SCHEME
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    THE 2023 SMPF SCHEME IS LAUNCHED!
    SPONSORSHIP REQUESTS ARE WELCOMED ;)
    ===============================

    The SMPF scheme (SYC Membership Pay Forward) will continue in 2023.

    The changes to eligibility that have been introduced in 2022 have worked well , and therefore will continue as set.

    At the end of 12 races in 2023 ( one each month) one annual FREE membership to the Sailonline Yacht Club will be made available to the best finishing (and fully qualifying as per rules hereunder) NON SYC member in each of the nominated races. The prize can be sponsored by any SOLer willing to do so.

    The sponsors of previous editions of the SMPF scheme did either make their Sponsorship publicly known, or acted anonymously under the flag of the Sailonline Yacht Club.

    The number of slots available for sponsoring one SMPF is extremely limited, as again in 2023 ONLY ONE SMPF race per month will be nominated and sponsored. If you are interested, please hurry up and contact me. By responding promptly to this invitation you will secure yourself a slot in the 2023 Sponsorship list

    All you need to do at this time is to write to: coord@sailonline.org , and confirm your willingness to support the SMPF scheme in 2023. If available you will be granted one slot (one month) , and the race of that month that will be nominated for SMPF scheme will be “your SMPF race”. (Traditionally that will be the Ocean Championship race for the given month).

    Some important information before you decide:

    1)– Your participation to the scheme, should you want to remain anonymous, will be treated in fully confidential mode by the Coordinator and the Sailonline Nav Sim AB Board, thus there will be only three persons aware of your position in the scheme.

    2)- This is by no means a solicitation to invest USD 35,00 into our platform, and you should not in any way feel obliged to adhere to the scheme.

    3) The prize will be delivered to the first NON SYC MEMBER over the finish line, who had NEVER been an SYC member before. As any NON SYC member over the finish line could be the prize winner, it is recommended that the next thread hereunder is looked at after an SMPF race , as the prize winner will be announced as soon as possible after the arrival of the first boat.

    4)- Should the best NON SYC member over the finish line not be eligible because lacking the requisite of point 3) above , the next in line will be identified and so on until a fully qualifying yacht is found and declared as the winner.

    5)-The SYC membership earned will start AFTER the date and time of finishing the qualifying race , as the status in that race must be and remain " NON SYC "

    6)- The SMPF prize will be delivered directly to the winner at the end of each nominated race, without asking for acceptance or collection. The winning SOLer will be made SYC member “ex officio” and the Management looks forward to hear from him/her sometimes after delivery.

    We look forward to hearing from you and to a well supported 2023 SMPF scheme! ;)

    On behalf of Sailonline NAV SIM AB

  • Re: R.I.P. J24Opla
    Board » General Discussion
    The fact that the vast majority of you does not remember J24Opla doing crazy things on the SOL waters ….means that we who do ….are OLD !!!! :(

    Claudio was sail racing here in a way that today would leave most of you quite astonished …….Those who are led by routers would be puzzled to see one boat going totally alone zillion of miles away from the pack ….and those of you who trust the rules of match racing like I do would at times scream in horror seeing him in front and yet going “his own way”………….

    It was simply his style…….and doing so he gifted us with a number of amazing memories of his unforgettable victories.
    Claudio legacy in SOL will remain ….”unique” ..to say the least …..

    Meeting him and his lovely family more than once IRL was also a great ……..GIFT !!

    Ciao Claudio

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
