    ... guest is intended as a spectator. As such the message "Now login with our guest account to view currently running races" is accurate, and guest being invisible is desired.
    Thank you for your eloquent answer.
    So log-in as sol is a better way to experience and view all the possibilities of your sailing and navigation simulation then doing so as guest.

    I think SOL-management does not like to have <guest> or <sol> active in a race. And even during practice-sailing <guest> is invisible.

    In the beginning years of sailonline it was always fun chasing <sol> the very moment the race was open for registration. When practice-sailing started this was no longer done.

    When the race was started <sol> could be sailed as a community boat. Skippers did not know each other; just fun of not knowing what the next move would be.

    All of a sudden <sol> could not chat any more. I know why that was done; why after years <sol> is still banned from chat I do not understand.

    <sol> and <guest> are positioned from race-start as -1 or 9999. OK. But why did sol-management take away all things that made navigating possible?

    <guest> is still not visible/usable during practice-racing.

    Seems this forum is not read/maintained by anyone who could change something in the working of Sail On Line. At least <guest> is still not navigable during practice racing.

    Time to change this welcome message?

    Nothing to enjoy. Guest boat invisible. No steer.

    I logged in to Silverrudder 2022 sep 13, 16:29 as guest.
    Is there a boat named guest?

    I did not see anything.
    I could not steer
    I could not enter a course

    2nd thought: will all be right when no longer practice-racing??

    Disappointed guest.

    Thank you for the welcoming reply.
    I completed my first race shot to finish, (I started Hawaii Sat evening, ended about 1 nm short as time ended) and learned a lot more about my racing style. I second-guessed every turn I made fighting with angles (or was that angels). Questions were answered in the chat and coffee with NewsArtist was a help. However, I think I frustrated him by introducing him to the Android App. He got revenge by showing me the Golden Globe race, which I started 3 weeks late.

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.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
