    uhmm..i know this is the Lada Ocean race, but why does the first warm up track has these strange marks.. I mean, this will be ocean racing?

    best, Dikke
    I join Dikke on this questioning.

    Could the SRC bring to light the reasons for such a choice?

    Was the weather forecast considered in the decision-making process, as it was in the Silverrudder, for example? If so, how?

    Were there other course options available?

    For the moment, this is about it.

    See you!

    Perhaps it's just me, but I miss a "search" tool in the Forum. IMHO, it would make it easier to find posts related to any given subject.

    What are your thoughts on this matter, please?

    Best regards,

    During Jakob's race, I went aground in 'invisible' land. After some thought, the boat being battered against the rocks, I changed the "map tile radius" to 1 and the "Max map polylines" to 1500.

    It was a wild guess, but the coastline appeared again.

    I returned the "Max map polylines" to 500, and the coast vanished again.

    If my memory is not failing me, Smo also reported that the coastline was missing.

    From this experience, I suppose the default settings are not enough to ensure the HIRES map will be fully visible in the Android app, and that users should be aware that they have to adjust the map configurations to avoid the problem.

    Thanks for your patience and attention.

    Best regards,


    Alexandre

    PS.: I have the 0.53 version running on a Galaxy S7 with Android 7. The same issue was observed on a Moto Z with Android 7.

    I have always had different port numbers for each race, and I had never had a problem...

    My observations suggest that the problem is not on QtVLM, for it can work using brainaid's software. It is the AGL, irrespective of the version, which has been unable to create the connection, and I haven't been able to figure out why...

    I am sending a sample of the feedback AGL gives to me.

    Thanks in advance!

  • 20170402 AutoGribLoader "unable to create connection on port 5010"
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi, everyone!

    During the last few days, I have had problems with Kipper's AutoGribLoader (AGL). It has been unable to create the TCP connection to communicate with QtVLM or Expedition.

    As a result of this issue, I have had to use Brainaid's proxy. This is fine if you are taking part in just one race, but it becomes a problem if there are multiple races to manage, as it will be the case now (M2O Prelude + A3 Leg 8 + RTWR Leg 4).

    My computer runs WIn 10, and I had never had such difficulties with the AGL until now.

  • Re: 2017 SRC Programme
    Board » General Discussion
    In general, it seems fair to wait for Piero's full reply.

    I just would like to add one little thing.

    As some of you already know, I came from the Virtual Regatta environment. There, the asymetry (of information, of starting times, of weather updates...) has been in favour of Europeans, and heavily in favour of French skippers.

    While I was there, I questioned that imbalance. The answer went along the lines of "most of VR's customers are from Europe".

    Granted, VR is an ordinary business, unlike SOL.

    I quote the announcement posted in this Forum by the SRC, so that we do not need to go to the original post to remember what we are writing about.

    QUOTE

    2016-12-18 22:36:30 - 2017 SRC Programme

    SRC has finalised the Calendar for 2017Q1 and here are the changes that you will see.
    • The Management board has limited SRC to 100 races per annum and so that is 25 races per quarter.
    • The Sprints have gone regional in a Series of six races for the three regions (Americas, Europe/Africa, ANZ/Far East) so that sailors off the water during that region’s winter have a Series to occupy their indoor spell with a start time amenable to that region. There will be three regional rounds with six races in each round for a total of 18 races, thus each calendar quarter will contain four or five races.
    • The COGC championship is not being continued for 2017.
    • The 40’ Series championship is new and this is where you will have the option of choosing at registration which 40’ yacht design you will use for each race from the three designs on offer over a six race series in Q1 and Q2. In the Series you cannot use one design more than twice so you will have to use each design twice. Choose wisely as your choice for that race cannot be changed. As always – Read the Notice of Race on the SOL HOME page before entering and preview the polars, the course and the weather using the GUEST boat facility (see links in the NOR). Subject to feedback and enjoyment, this 40’ Series championship is planned to continue for a second Series into Q3 and Q4 with changes if found necessary and/or called for.
    • There has been some discussion over the most suitable time to start un-buddied races (Ocean, 40’ Series and Other Races). Just starting them at local times for their location did not seem to reflect our active membership so the Board has decided that, in the absence of a dictated or buddied start time, these races should start at a time amenable to Europe/Africa 65%, Americas 25% and ANZ/Far East 10%. This percentage allocation was drawn from the entry list for Xmas to Xmas 2016 (the Board had to use something and chose a very popular race). SRC has done its best to satisfy this decision.
    • Finally SRC is adding a new Clause 4 to the Sailonline Racing Rules (‘SRR’) to ensure that SOL remains a game where the yachts are controlled by the skippers and not by independent 3rd party software in the skipper’s absence.
    Hope that you like what we have done.

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.
