    Board » Flag Officers » Race Calendar
    I have participated in all past virtual volvo ocean races, The coming edition seems to take place without a vritual version. Would it be possible to add this to the race schedule on such a short notice ? I volunteer to complete a race proposal if it makes a chance, after becoming a SYC member off course.

    Tnks kroppyer for your reaction.
    It is as you say. This resembles reality.
    I was attrackted by the high wind speeds of the depression, but development of it changed, as usual. I had no chance at all to avoid the blue gue afterwards.
    I am having thoughts to write my own router. But that won't change reality.

    the wind information in the client
    differs from the wind information in the gribviewer, which uses the file from
    brainaids site:

    client TWD 122.34° TWS 2.82KT
    gribview TWD 120 TWS 5.3KT

    Meanwhile I have read that there are differences. The effect is that my routing software sends me in the wrong direction.
    How do other SOL users handle this situation ?

  • Boat Name Change
    Board » Technical Support
    My current boatname is :PietD
    Can you please change it to :Armchairsailor
    I suppose that after the change I will need to log in by that name.
    I did not realize that the account name I chose will be used as boat name.
    I suggest that you one time include a feature to select the boat name apart from the account name. I have seen multiple users that wanted to change it after registration.
    I understand that it does not make sense to change it after doing many races, but in real life people occasionally acquire another boat as well.

Current Races:

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024

Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
